“Harmony and Evolution: An Exhibition of the Chinese-American Art Faculty Association” showcases the work of art and design faculty from across the country to address the issue of how art and design express cultural integration and creativity. The Chinese-American Art Faculty Association (CAAFA) is a national organization with over 130 members representing art and design in the U.S. and China. This iteration of the CAAFA’s biennial exhibition represents the first time the association has exhibited in the Midwest and draws from the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s focus on diversity, inclusion, and creativity. Inaugural tour Thursday, February 27, 5:00–7:00 pm.
