The Arts Institute works to make the arts more visible and effective at UW-Madison. Governed by arts faculty and staff, we represent the collective voice and strength of the arts at the University. The Arts Institute funds and supports projects with university- and community-wide impact, including artists residencies, awards and fellowships, public programs, and arts marketing and outreach. Created in 1998, the Arts Institute grew out of a university Arts Consortium and other collaborative efforts. An “intercollege unit,” the Arts Institute is sponsored by the College of Letters & Science, the School of Education, and the School of Human Ecology. ARTS INSTITUTE LEADERSHIP STAFF: Susan C.
