Poem by Megan Gannon featured in art exhibition

“Dispatch from the Domestic Interior,” a poem by Associate Professor of English Megan Gannon, was included in the art exhibition “Claiming Space: A New Century of Visionary Women” at the Museum of Wisconsin Art in West Bend. The exhibit ran July 24 through Oct. 3, 2021.

“Claiming Space” celebrated MOWA’s 60th anniversary and its visionary founder with an exhibition featuring Wisconsin’s current crop of visionary women. Thirty artists contributed deeply personal works that touch on themes of motherhood, the body, life during the pandemic, daily routines, hair, and the otherworldly side of femininity. Accompanying the works of art were brief expositions written by curators, gallerists, historians and poets.

Alexandria Wilber ’17 is the curator of public programs at the Museum of Wisconsin Art and had a role in planning and producing the exhibit.
