The MASA Hidden Treasures Tour
Many of us come to campus everyday, but we rarely explore the amazing hidden treasures that this university has to offer. People come from far and wide to take advantage of UW-Madison’s unique attractions while we often struggle to find time to experience them.
To help academic staff learn about and fully enjoy their university, MASA has scheduled a semester full of events showcasing the “hidden treasures” of UW-Madison.
The first of the Hidden Treasures Tours will be held Thursday, February 28, from 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. and will include tours of the School of Human Ecology’s Design Gallery and the Hellen Allen Textile Collection.
The Design Gallery’s Student Exhibits showcase “the best of class and research projects by students in textile, apparel, and interior design. Design 2008 is an annual exhibition juried by professionals in the field. Throughout the academic year, students in Design Studies studio classes reserve their best projects for this exhibition, which typically includes a broad range of work from weaving samples, garments, color studies, sculpture, and architectural models to computer-aided-design images and digital projections.”
A department tradition since 1992, this show provides many students with their first opportunity to exhibit in a professionally managed gallery will be holding their yearly student exhibits.”
The Design Gallery (room 70) and the Helen Allen Textile Collection (room 378) are both located in the School of Human Ecology Building, 1300 Linden Drive.
