Visual Art and the Wisconsin Idea

Visual Art and the Wisconsin Idea

Record date: Aug 04, 2016

Maryo Gard Ewell, Arts Administrator and daughter of Robert E. Gard, discusses the history of the Wisconsin Regional Art Program in the 1940s. Self-taught artists enrolled as noncredit students at the University of Wisconsin and introduced the arts to rural communities. This was the embodiment of the Wisconsin Idea--extending the knowledge and research of the university to everyone in the state.
