Visual Art and the Wisconsin Idea

Visual Art and the Wisconsin Idea

Maryo Gard Ewell, Arts Administrator and daughter of Robert E. Gard, discusses the history of the Wisconsin Regional Art Program in the 1940s. Self-taught artists enrolled as noncredit students at the University of Wisconsin and introduced the arts to rural communities. This was the embodiment of the Wisconsin Idea--extending the knowledge and research of the university to everyone in the state.
