International Dogs II
Curated by Ms. Judy Cohen
Exhibit Dates: 7/27/15 - 9/15/15
Random dogs still fill my travels – and my camera frame. Madison Art Collection Director Kate Stevens chose these images from my foolishly large array of new offerings, all from journeys in 2014. Though I do not know any of these dogs personally, my brief encounters with them brought joy to my day and will, I hope, brighten yours as well.
“Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend; and inside a dog, it's too dark to read.” Groucho Marx
"Dogs feel very strongly that they should always go with you in the car, in case the need should arise for them to bark violently at nothing right in your ear." Dave Barry

- Food & Food for Thought: Feed Your Global I.Q.
Office of International Programs I-Week Photo Contest
Exhibit Dates: 9/21/15-10/2/15
Opening Reception: 9/21/15, 6:30 pm
The Office of International Programs is happy to announce the 2015 International Week theme, “Food & Food for Thought: Feed Your Global I.Q.” This year’s theme begins with a common thread shared by all cultures and people: food. Food is an essential aspect of our human existence, yet each culture follows unique customs in types and meanings of its food. Whether it’s gazpacho from Spain or polow from Iran, the use of chopsticks or injera, how hospitality is connected to food, or how fasting (and feasting) is a traditional expression of faith, we hope the events during I-Week will not only entice your taste buds but will also stimulate your mind, adding to your global I.Q. Join us for this engaging International Week as we explore the many facets of food!
