WHO MATTERS: Intergenerational Photo & Story Project

In August and September of 2017, Madison Senior Center and Madison Public Library teamed up with local photographer Jennifer Bastian and local author Pam Phillips Olson to capture pictures and stories of multigenerational relationships. Families, friends, co-workers, and neighbors participated with only one rule: at least one person in the photo had to be 55 years of age or older. The photos and accompanying stories that came out of these sessions will be on display for the month of December at Madison Public Library and Madison Senior Center.

Site-specific INSTALLATION

On Ouisconsin: An Illustrated Historical Catalogue uses a repurposed 15-drawer library card catalogue to describe a fictitious yet familiar land. Each drawer’s contents highlight a different aspect of life in Ouisconsin, “the land of mumbled apologies”. Text and representative artifacts, assembled by author-illustrator Philip Heckman, showcase what defines Ouisconsinites--from their beer to their inventions to their baseball opera. The result is a unique picture of neighbors who sometimes look a lot like us. From October 2017 through January 2018, the "fake history" catalogue will be on display on the second floor landing of Madison's Central Library.
