Terese Agnew's "Writing in Stone" is a large-scale, collaborative artwork that incorporates the work of dozens of artists, writers, historians, performers, and skilled craftsmen. "Writing in Stone" is an immersive art experience that honors selfless ideas and efforts from leaders and ordinary citizens in Wisconsin’s past who worked to make life better for future generations.

The exhibit is traveling the state and comes to Viterbo with five new monuments. It includes a new hands-on “Memory Book” that artist Peggy Krzyzewski is creating and southwest Wisconsin students are writing.

Agnew’s artworks can be found in the permanent collections of the Museum of Arts and Design in New York; the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Renwick Gallery in Washington D.C.; Merton College, Oxford in the U.K.; The Milwaukee Art Museum; the John M Walsh III Collection of Contemporary Art Quilts; and numerous other private collections.  She has been featured in the "PBS Craft in America" series and in 2012 received the Wisconsin Visual Art Lifetime Achievement Award.

This event is part of the D.B. Reinhart Institute for Ethics in Leadership 2017 Fall Lecture Series.  For more information, please visit: www.viterbo.edu/ethics.
