Increase visibility of art from the permanent collection

Senior Exhibition at the Lawton Gallery

UW-Green Bay has a fine collection of artworks including award-winning pieces by our own students, many of which are displayed in individual offices and suites. New for fall 2010 is an initiative in which the Office of the Curator of Art will begin placing works from the collection in high-traffic corridors on campus. Two display cases — one along the concourse linking the Garden Cafe to the Instructional Services Building, the other between Environmental Sciences and Laboratory Sciences — will showcase 3-D pieces. Additionally, a selection of framed works will be secured in busy public areas across campus.

Employee suggestions were the basis for two dozen "Quick Fix" initiatives implemented during Chancellor Harden's first year. Each of the 100 or so suggestions was discussed at the cabinet level and assigned to a division leader and planning team for followup. Some suggestions turned out to be measures already in place, some involved only minor tweaks to existing practice, and others were determined not to be "quick fixes" at all because of cost, complexity or time horizon. Several projects not yet initiated (and therefore not listed here) remain under consideration.
