About the CUW Art Gallery

Over 30 years ago, the CUW Art Gallery was founded with the hope of educating, challenging, and inspiring the students, faculty, staff, and community of CUW as well as the public through exposure to the vast world of art. Our mission is to encourage appreciation and understanding of art and its role in society through direct engagement with original works of art. Combining fresh, object-based scholarship with broad accessibility, the CUW Art Gallery aims to provoke and affirm accepted meanings of art objects and to suggest new ones to its patrons. We aspire to excite the imagination, and present opportunities for our patrons to look into the study of art and culture.

The goals of the CUW Art Gallery are to:

  • Bring excellent contemporary and historical art to the CUW campus community
  • Reflect the diversity of the university and Southeastern Wisconsin community
  • Connect the university and the public through relevant art and cultural programs
  • Support student, emerging and established artists by providing opportunities for the creation and exhibition of cutting edge visual art
  • Development of self-knowledge inherent in artistic activity for the personal growth and development of the CUW Gallery students, faculty, staff and patrons

Just Enough for the City

Opening Reception: 6-8pm April 25th
Exhibition: April 18th through May 18th, 2019
Artists: Austin Hribar

Originally growing up in the country-side of Southeast Wisconsin, Milwaukee was always the “big-city” to me. Going to school for my undergraduate at Concordia University of Wisconsin allowed me the opportunity to spend a majority of my time outside of schoolwork in the city of Milwaukee. The city could be said to be synonymous with river described by Heraclitus: never the same every time you step in it. The city is forever changing and forever changes you which is why it is such a pleasure to photograph. In this gallery there are photographs from the cities of Milwaukee, Madison, Chicago, and Sarasota, all of which have their own appeal. The city is a place of both prosperity and poverty where some are living lavish while others are “living just enough for the city” like the 1974 Stevie Wonder song.
