On the ninth episode of Front Page, Chazen Art Director Amy Gilman reflects on the beginning of the institution, during a chaotic and at times violent part of American history, and discusses her plans for its future following the museum's 50th anniversary.
Just three weeks after a bombing on the UW-Madison campus claimed the life of one researcher and injured three others, the Chazen Museum of Art opened its doors as the Elvehjem Art Center, in part to provide the community with a place to heal through the arts. Fifty years later, the museum continues to thrive.
