Expanding Horizons

Posted on April 09, 2014

I tend to be boring. I prefer Bert over Ernie, my favorite color is beige, and my idea of spontaneity is asking for butter flavoring on popcorn at a movie theater. As a child, my favorite night of television was Sunday on CBS, because you could watch 60 Minutes then Murder She Wrote.

Needless to say, I was taken aback when the Woodson Art Museum undertook plans to host a site-specific installation by artist and UW-Madison professor Jennifer Angus, who creates elaborate Victorian patterns with deceased insects.
