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

AFTERSHOCK: The Human Toll of War

Meet the Author: 7pm Tuesday, Feb. 25, 2020 - Learn More
Exhibition: August 26 through October 20, 2019

The world was in ruins at the end of World War II—from the Blitz in London to the atomic bomb blasts in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. A small group of Army soldiers witnessed and photographed it all.

More than seven decades later, three photo historians—Richard Cahan, Mark Jacob, and Michael Williams—began to comb through National Archives holdings to compile Aftershock: The Human Toll of War. The book contains numerous never-before-seen photos captured by the three World War II military photographers. Scanned directly from original negatives, the photographs give readers a powerful glimpse into the devastation and destruction of the conflict, and in so doing, the book tells the stories of the young photographers whose lives were changed forever because of 1945.
