To Be Seen and Heard brings attention to five often under-recognized Wisconsin artists: Prophet William J. Blackmon, Josephus Farmer, Simon Sparrow, Albert Zahn and Eugene Von Bruenchenhein. These artists, who were preachers, environment builders and multi-media experimenters, created works not in isolation, but “to be seen and heard." Join the curators of the exhibition, Matt Arient and Tim Bruce, for a discussion about the themes and messages that bring this diverse set of artists together.
