The UW-Green Bay Center for Public Affairs (CFPA) and Environmental Management and Business Institute (EMBI) have received a Career Ready Internship Initiative grant in the amount of $150,000 from Great Lakes Higher Education Guaranty Corporation. This grant will benefit students by offering them opportunities to gain invaluable, real-world experience through paid internships in their fields of study. UW-Green Bay will use the grant to create new paid internships and turn previously unpaid internships into paid internships, for juniors and seniors who don’t receive enough financial aid to cover college costs.
The Lawton Gallery at the UW-Green Bay will present “Andy Warhol Photographs,” Thursday, Oct. 10-Oct. 31 in 230 Theatre Hall. An opening reception will be held from 4:30-6:30 p.m. Oct. 10, featuring an introductory talk by Lawton curator Stephen Perkins at 5 p.m. The Warhol exhibition features a selection of Polaroid and silver gelatin photographs that were part of a recent gift to UW-Green Bay from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Inc. Many of the Polaroid photographs are preliminary studies for silkscreen portraits, and the black-and-white works include portraits and other miscellaneous subjects that caught Warhol’s attention. Both sets of works attest to Warhol’s busy social and professional life, as well as a curiosity about the world that he obsessively explored through the medium of photography.
