When COVID precautions limited in-person gatherings and closed campus galleries, the CDMC quickly adapted. Exhibitions were put online. Social media channels were revamped. And before the end of the summer, the center had launched a new website (cdmc.wisc.edu) as well as CDMC Conversations: live, online discussions between artists, designers, industry professionals, staff, and students.
CDMC gallery exhibitions now available online, Kerr TV interview on parenting stresses under COVID-19, Ponto wins data science research grant from American Family Insurance, new food security mapping tool from Bartfeld featured in Mid-West Farm Report, and more.
Dr. Sarah Anne Carter, currently Visiting Executive Director and Visiting Assistant Professor of Design Studies, has accepted an invitation to serve as CDMC’s Executive Director beginning in fall of 2021.
Natalie Wright, who just completed her first year of PhD coursework in Design Studies, has won the Joseph-Armand Bombardier Canada Graduate Scholarship from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. Recognized as a top applicant, Wright will research histories of making and disability under the mentorship of Professors Marina Moskowitz and Sarah Anne Carter.
