Welcome Tom Jones, Ho-Chunk photographer and professor at UW–Madison, as he discusses the exhibition Clarence Monegar: Between Two Worlds. Born in Wittenberg, Wisconsin, Monegar (1910–1968) created watercolors of the animals and landscapes of the Ho-Chunk Nation; his distinctive style earned him many admirers, including the American painter John Steuart Curry. Jones curated the exhibition, which was on view at the Ho-Chunk Nation Museum and Cultural Center, in Tomah, Wisconsin, in 2020.

 

 

This lecture is co-sponsored by the Milwaukee Art Museum’s American Arts Society and the Chipstone Foundation. AAS is one of the Museum’s nine themed support groups, which focus on specific interest areas within the Museum’s collection.
