University of Wisconsin–Madison Division of the Arts | Annual Report | 2018–19

WELCOME, MISSION & VISION The Division of the Arts is pleased to share our annual report for the 2018–19 academic year. Our mission and vision are to harness the power and potential of artistic explorations and expressions for the benefit of the university, the state of Wisconsin, and the world. We believe that designers, artists, architects, performers, and creative scholars are essential to solving complex problems and advancing society. Creativity not only enhances our culture, it broadens our perspective, deepens our understanding, and enables us to innovate, grow, and change. We advance the arts as a vital platform to inquire about the world, illuminate and address injustices, challenge points of view, and to celebrate all aspects of humanity. We remain steadfast in our mission to embrace all members

of our diverse community and to promote civil discourse and freedom of speech as guiding principles and values in arts education.

other activities bringing together the work of UW–Madison’s community of students, faculty, and staff.

We advance our mission and vision by:

In July 2018, we launched our new name and started operating as the Division of the Arts. We expanded our arts recruitment efforts, including the new Creative Campus Tour, a walking tour of arts spaces at UW–Madison. We celebrated our longstanding role in the community with the 21st Wisconsin Film Festival in April and the 20th Madison Early Music Festival in July. We engaged with students through The Studio Creative Arts Community and the Arts Business Competition as well as with campus through the Arts Agôn: Arts Research Forum.

1. Engaging Students in the academic disciplines that constitute the field of interdisciplinary creative arts, design, and performance; 2. Supporting Arts Research and increasing its role in interfacing with other disciplines; and 3. Furthering the Wisconsin Idea through the creative arts. As this annual report shows, these three areas of focus are the basis on which we continue to support initiatives, programs, residencies, and

THE STUDIO: CREATIVE ARTS COMMUNITY The Studio is a residential learning community located in Sellery Hall which hosts academic and co-curricular programming for 64 first-year students with an expressed interest in the arts. It is co-sponsored by the Division of University Housing, the Division of Diversity, Equity & Educational Achievement, and the Division of the Arts.

In the spring, students in the seminar class “The Studio Presents…” worked with interim Faculty Director, Associate Professor Carolyn Kallenborn. The students created, produced, and performed “Breaking and Centering” with live music, poetry, video, and narratives in the Wisconsin Union Theater’s Play Circle.

The Studio offers residents access to art and performance spaces and provides numerous opportunities to attend cultural events. Residents participate in seminar courses and use their artistic skills and talents to serve the greater UW–Madison community through projects, performances, collaborations, and exhibitions.

The Division also sponsored two Creative Arts Awards for arts research to current residents.

In the fall, students in the “Mapping Your Creative Practice” course worked with Studio Faculty Director Associate Professor Faisal Abdu’Allah to explore a wide range of arts across campus. The students created an immersive multi-media installation, “A Night to Remember,” presented at the Chazen Museum of Art in conjunction with their Southern Rites exhibition.

INTERDISCIPLINARY ARTS RESIDENCY PROGRAM Funded through the Office of the Provost, the Division of the Arts’ Interdisciplinary Arts Residency Program (IARP) brings innovative, world-class artists to campus for semester-long residencies. Artists teach an interdisciplinary course, present public events, and participate in community outreach. The program gives students exposure to working artists, provides course credit, and strengthens programmatic ties across disciplines.

Stuart Flack Fall 2018 Stuart Flack is a playwright, producer, social entrepreneur, and policy researcher. His awardwinning work includes productions at many of the leading theaters in the United States. He has worked with The Seldoms, a Chicago-based dance/theatre company, on two full-length works which examine power, politics, and social action. As a producer, he ran the Chicago Humanities Festival from 2007 through 2012. Flack’s residency was presented by the Division of the Arts and sponsored by the Bolz Center at the Wisconsin School of Business with Angela Richardson as residency lead. Co-sponsors included the Design Studies Department, Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF), and Wisconsin Union Theater. The Wisconsin Institute of Discovery was also a partner for the final event.

Guest Artists ff Adrian Danzig ff Jacob Mills ff Marcia Miquelon

Residency Highlights During the fall residency, Flack taught “Performing Information: Exploring Data Through Live Performance.” The course combined analysis of data to create information-driven performance in a workshop setting through collaborative and experimental trial and error. Flack presented at the Bolz Center Lunch & Learn Series. He offered two playwriting workshops at the Wisconsin Union Theater and hosted guest artists for the Dance Department’s Friday Forum. All of the guest artists interacted with students in the course. Flack also took part in the 2018 Wisconsin Science Festival, coordinating an interactive project and presentation with UW–Madison Associate Professor Kevin Ponto and Assistant Professor Karen Schloss. The “What Color Is…?” statewide community project used LEGO® blocks to represent answers to over 25 questions. The semester culminated with a free and public event in the Discovery Building on December 8. The final event featured students sharing data in surprising ways, using dance, clowning, and theater along with Solo® cups and LEGOs. Photos Video

ARTS RESEARCH The arts are key to the creation of new knowledge through research, whether it takes the form of arts practice as method of inquiry, historical research through curation, arts in science research, arts educational research, or arts impact studies. In 2018–19, the Division of the Arts hosted a series of events to recognize and grow arts research. The Arts Agôn: Arts Research Forum series encouraged arts researchers to share their work to create connections and encourage dialogue. The October 11 forum featured arts researchers from the University of Porto, Portugal and research on the history and practices of prairie restoration expressed through comics. The April

12 forum focused on undergraduate research as part of the Undergraduate Research Symposium, highlighting student research through dance, textile and fashion design, and cartooning. On November 19, the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) presented a town hall to discuss their 2018 report “The Integration of the Humanities and Arts with Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine in Higher Education.” UW–Madison presenters highlighted arts integration practices including theatrical improv training for medical professionals, science research expressed through cartoons, and humanities coursework for STEM students.

The Division also maintains memberships in national and international organizations dedicated to furthering arts research. Staff attended conferences hosted by the Alliance for the Arts in Research Universities (a2ru) in Athens, Georgia and the European League of Institutes of the Arts (ELIA) in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. The 2020 national a2ru conference will be hosted by UW–Madison, and principally organized by the Division of the Arts. Arts Agôn Video NASEM Town Hall Video

Screens for Teens

Additional Outreach

With generous support from SSM Health and Dane Arts covering ticket and transportation costs, Big Screens, Little Folks saw a 25% increase in attendance from school field trips. About 2,600 students watched a program of international shorts (grades K–2) or the featurelength animated film from Japan, Mirai (grades 3–5). Teachers received a study guide to assist with integrating film studies into their curriculum.

Screens for Teens brought 8 screenings of Wisconsin Film Festival (WFF) films to seven high schools and middle schools across southern Wisconsin. Each program offered post-screening Q&As (in person or Skype) with the filmmaker or relevant guest speaker. This year’s programming was expanded to address specific curriculum. ff Bugs was shown to biology and ecology students at Shabazz High School (Madison). A UW graduate student then discussed insects as a sustainable food source.

The Division continued to collaborate with the Madison Public Library’s Bubbler program and Crestwood Elementary School’s film program for the free “Stop-Motion Animation” workshop at Union South for 50 children and adults. To strengthen the relationship with local film educators, WFF staffed tables at the “Explore Arts Night” in the fall of 2018 at Crestwood Elementary and the “Madison Elementary Animation Festival” in June 2019 at Sequoia Library.

ff Los Lecheros screened during Edgewood High School’s (Madison) “Arts Week.” Coburn Dukeheart, the film’s producer and from the Center for Investigative Journalism, led the post-screening discussion.

ARTS RECRUITMENT & ARTS ON CAMPUS Arts Recruitment The Arts Recruitment Initiative was launched in 2017 with the goal of boosting student enrollment numbers in the fine arts. The Division of the Arts continued and built on the multi-platform “Arts at UW” campaign to promote the vibrant community of creative excellence. Through coordinated online and printed materials, social media, tabling (including at SOAR), promotional items, email campaigns, and direct mailings, the Division connected with students at all points of their decision process. In partnership with the Office of Admissions and Recruitment, the second Admitted Students Day for the Arts was held on April 6 with informational sessions and panels for 68 admitted students. This year, the Division piloted new ways to support departmental recruitment efforts. Targeted recruitment event funds allowed seven departments to defray the cost of attending and marketing their programs at 12 discipline-specific recruitment events. The Division of the Arts secured scholarship funds through the Office of the Provost to provide $5,000 each for five departments to boost new majors in their units.

Creative Campus Tour

The tour is an introduction to the fine arts programs on campus and is supported by numerous campus partners. The Division contracted with Museum Hack, a consulting company that seeks to reimagine and inspire new adult museum experiences around the world. The goal of the tour is to showcase all the arts offerings on campus and to attract new students to campus programs. The tour engages with and appeals to prospective and incoming students. This project marks the first cross-campus collaborative effort to highlight the creative spaces on campus. Sixteen energetic and interactive tours with 120 participants were led by student tour guides.

Arts on Campus Arts on Campus is the gateway to arts units, events, and news on campus. During the 2018–19 academic year, the Division of the Arts collaborated with and promoted numerous campus units through student recruitment and increased awareness of the arts at UW–Madison via communication channels on campus and throughout the state including advertising, marketing, outreach, and resource fairs.

The Division of the Arts presented its inaugural Creative Campus Tour on September 1, 2018. Pictured: Participants on the Creative Campus Tour. Photo by Maryam Ladoni.

Arts at UW Blog In January 2019, the Division of the Arts launched the Arts at UW blog. Nine blog posts offered an insider’s look at the Arts at UW–Madison and highlighted some of the latest arts news and events happening on campus. We featured each of our partner arts units in an effort to better connect and engage with the Arts on Campus audience. The blog was distributed through the division’s email communications and on social media. E-communications: 12,650 subscribers : 5,410 followers : 32,000 views
