Milwaukee Club Stages Art Premier
O VER 800 attended a Preview of
     the First Annual Art Show spon-
sored by the Wisconsin Alumni Club
of Milwaukee and presented by the
University of Wisconsin department
of art at Madison, under the direc-
tion of Prof. Gibson Byrd. The affair
was held at the Milwaukee War Me-
morial Center on Sunday, December
3rd, and stimulated considerable dis-
cussion regarding today's contempo-
rary art.
  Assisting in the preview show were
instructors and students who demon-
strated the various techniques used
in the preparation of wood block,
litho stone, intaglio, and silk screen
prints. The showing continued for
two weeks at the War Memorial Cen-
ter. According to Robert W. Maerck-
lein, chairman of the event, it is
planned to repeat the exhibit next
year with specific emphasis on Wis-
consin University landscape and
campus scenes.
  Judge for the Exhibition was Mr.

Design at Illinois Institute of Tech-
nology. Friends of the Alumni Asso-
