Nohl Suitcase Fund Sends Milwaukee Art Around the World
On Aug. 20 the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design (MIAD) presents select Export Fund works from 2008 and 2009 in the Layton Gallery exhibition "Out of the Suitcase IV."
Among the 20 notable artists are: Chris Davis-Benavides and Karen Gunderman, who presented contemporary ceramics in the Shanghai International Teapot Biennale; Matt Cipov, who showed 160 drawings in the Vienna, Austria, exhibition "Masquerade"; Santiago Cucullu, who displayed work at Boston's Huret & Spector Gallery; and Jessica Meuninck-Ganger and Nathaniel Stern, who exhibited at Gallery AOP in Johannesburg, South Africa (afterward, Ganger was invited to present a solo show during 2011).
MIAD hosts an opening reception 6-9 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 8.
