Obsurd: Abstract Urban Art by Michael Ward

July 10, 2014 - September 12, 2014

Historical Reading Room and 3rd Floor Gallery

Reception: July 10, 2014 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

The world of transplanted New York artist, Michael Ward, begins with black & white and ends with color, lots of color. In Obsurd: Abstract Urban Art, Michael gives us collaged illustrations full of multiple abstract images, some revealing themselves after two or three views. There are faces within faces, dogs with flippers, beasts and aliens, lizard and spaceships, morphed elephants, lots of cars and rockets. Graffiti-like in its vibrancy, Picasso-like in it abstractions; for all the edges and borders, the characters feel fluid and vibrant, accommodating and inviting.

I wish you could hear Michael talk about each piece; the music, relationships, symbolism, and history that influences his artwork and has brought him to this point in his creative landscape. Due to a traumatic brain injury resulting from a car accident when he was being driven home from the hospital, immediately after birth, Michael has been classified as having Cerebral Palsy but sees this as a challenge and not a disability. His artwork has transcended the difficulties in his life, and his greatest talent may be the sharing of his story through Obsurd illustrations.

Costly Progress: Medical Advances in the American Civil War

January 27, 2014 - October 19, 2014

Historical Reading Room and 3rd Floor Gallery

In order to share a portion of our stellar Rare Books & Special Collections, (and to honor the 150+ anniversary of the Civil War) we offer: Costly Progress: Medical Advances in the American Civil War.

 While the Civil War was catastrophic in terms of lost lives, maimed soldiers, diseased camps, and the like- its practices also had a profound effect on how military medicine, plastic surgery, anesthesia, emergency medicine and hygiene were performed in subsequent wars, and in practice today.

The exhibition includes artifacts (surgical amputation kits) as well as books and manuals from the 1860s, prompting one viewer, Marie Koch to say, "...reading the marked passages in the books was awesome.  I was awestruck by the things I read.  The primitive kits juxtapositioned with the material on how to create a stump that would tolerate a prosthesis was amazing!"

Costly Progress is in the Historical Reading Room on the 3rd floor of Ebling Library. For more information or to schedule a tour. 608 262-2402

Life & Limb

December 23, 2013 - February 1, 2014

HSLC 2nd Floor Landing

Historiographically, the perspectives of surgeons, physicians, and nurses are richly documented in the history of Civil War medicine, which highlights the heroism and brutality of battlefield operations and the challenges of caring for the wounded during wartime. Yet the experiences of injured soldiers during the conflict and in the years afterwards are less well-known.

More than three million soldiers fought in the war from 1861-1865. More than half a million died, and almost as many were wounded but survived.
Hundreds of thousands were permanently disabled by battlefield injuries or surgery, which saved lives by sacrificing limbs. Life and Limb: The Toll of the Civil Warexplores the experiences of disabled Civil War veterans who served as a symbol of the fractured nation and a stark reminder of the costs of the conflict.

Life and Limb: The Toll of the Civil War is a traveling exhibit from the National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland. Ebling will host the six free standing illustrated panels on our 2nd floor landing, just outside the Ebling Library, giving them easy access from UW Hospital, the VA Hospital, the Health Sciences Learning Center, School of Medicine & Public Health, School of Pharmacy and School of Nursing. They are viewable when the HSLC is open, essentially 7:45 am until after 11:00 pm most days.

There will be a complementary installation of books and artifacts from Ebling’s Rare Books & Special Collections chronicling the medical treatment during the war in the 3rd floor Historical Reading Room. We will also provide a bibliography of primary material (from 1860-1870) and secondary (histories of the Civil War) that might be of interest to those visiting the Life & Limb exhibit. Contact Micaela Sullivan-Fowler msullivan@library.wisc.edu for more information on those accompanying projects.

Bump on a Line: The Art of Waiting

September 25, 2013 - December 13, 2013

Historical Reading Room and 3rd Floor Gallery

Reception: September 25, 2013 4:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Silas B. Ritchie, 28, was born with cystic fibrosis and waited for two years to have a double lung transplant. Dale Kaminski has known Silas since he was born and is a close friend and collaborator with Silas and his family.  These photos are a record of a daily mindful practice that helped them come to grips with the stress of waiting ; cups of tea, the weather, nature, the friends who shared this journey... are all represented and appreciated. Each day, a pair of images, formed a "bump on the line" of their lives. Keeping creativity alive helped them deal with the uncertainty of the impending operation's success by providing a moment of pause and reflection; an appreciation for the everyday: which helped mitigate the stress and uneasy excitement of waiting for The Call. The call that finally came for Silas to receive the ultimate gift, a second chance at life.

The exhibit is open when Ebling is open.

  • Monday - Thursday:  7:30 AM - 11:15 PM
    Friday: 7:30 AM - 5:45 PM
  • Saturday:   10:00 AM - 5:45 PM
  • Sunday:  10:00 AM - 11:15 PM

After Chernobyl

June 14, 2013 - August 31, 2013

Ebling Library, 3rd Floor Gallery

Ebling Library and the UW Health Art Department presents: After Chernobyl, the images of photojournalist Michael Forster Rothbart. Along with the evocative photos of people, buildings, animals and the denuded and recovering landscape, Michael offers a cohesive narrative, consisting of a single description on each photo panel, chronicling life in post nuclear accident Chernobyl.

Forster Rothbart spent two years in Chernobyl interviewing and photographing the residents of the area. His photos evoke a strong connection between photographer and subject, whether inanimate or human. In contrast to the provocative promotional image, the majority of the photographs instill a sense of forward movement, of honoring the past (Chernobyl’s accident was in 1986) and then profiling the capable, problematic existence in Chenobyl and the surrounding towns, cities and villages.

As  Forster Rothbart suggests: “Dolls lay scattered on a classroom floor of the Solntsye kindergarten in Pripyat, the abandoned city one mile from the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. A closed Soviet city with population 49,360, Pripyat was built to house workers at Chernobyl. Today Pripyat is an eerie ghost town. Any valuables have long-since been stolen, but the toys remain. In the days following the Chernobyl accident, families were evacuated and told they could return in 3 days. Some have never returned, yet still mourn their paradise lost. When strangers think of Chernobyl, this is what they imagine: dusty, abandoned dolls. And yes, they are here. You’ve seen them. Now let’s move on.”

And move on, he does. The installation itself evokes an airy, curtain like aesthetic, the over-sized photo panels moving slightly on their hinges, their stark white margins making the images of engineers, farmers, street scenes, bees, and children pop from their background; the evocative text lending another poignant, reverential, informational air. As a visitor has already commented, “Really, people still live there?! I had no idea…” Forster Rothbart’s exhibit is about tenacity, hope, technology, nature, love, the invisibility of radiation, the vagaries of science and the inhabitant's devotion to homeland.

From his last panel in the show: “Most outsiders think Chernobyl is a place of danger and despair, and so that is what they photograph. For me, however, Chernobyl tells a story about endurance and hope. I created this exhibit because I want the world to know what I know: the people of Chernobyl are not victims, mutants and orphans. They are simply people living their lives, with their own joys and sorrow, hopes and fears. Like you. Like me.”

Formerly at UW, Michael now makes his home in New York. He is working on a number of projects including a documentary on children’s summer camps and chronicling the effects of the tsunami and earthquake on the nuclear plant in Fukushima, Japan. For some background, visit Michael’s web site.

After Chernobyl opened on June 14 and goes until August 31st, 2013. The installation hangs in Ebling’s 3rd floor galleries, just up the stairs in the 3rd floor landing, and all along the group study room on the south side of the 3rd floor.
Also come see the complementary historical exhibit, Fallout: The Mixed Blessing of Radiation & the Public Health, in Ebling’s 3rd floor Historical Reading Room until the end of August. The exhibits are open when Ebling is open.

Hours:
Monday – Thursday: 7:30 AM – 11:15 PM
Friday: 7:30 AM – 5:45 PM
Saturday: 10:00 AM – 5:45 PM
Sunday: 10:00 AM – 11:15 PM

Tiny: Art from Microscopes at UW-Madison

March 11, 2011 - April 1, 2011

Historical Reading Room and 3rd Floor Gallery

Some of the world's smallest art (but printed and framed in large format!) is on display in the Ebling's 3rd floor galleries. Nearly 50 images and a number of models feature cells, molecules and nanoscale structures generated by UW-Madison scientists over the last 10 years. The magnified images include mice and fruit-fly embryos, butterfly and plants cells, and amazing, colorful corn kernels. Research specialist Steve Paddock of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute helped produce the collection. He says that researchers colored some images, which serves to highlight different genes within the photographs. The collection comes to Ebling from Tandem Press. Tandem's Director, Paula Panczenko originated the exhibit at the Dane County Airport.

We are very excited to be able to share it on the campus's West side!

Opening Doors: Contemporary African-American Surgeons

August 2, 2010 - September 24, 2010

HSLC 2nd Floor Landing

African Americans have always practiced medicine, whether as physicians, healers, midwives, or "root doctors." The journey of the African American physician from pre-Civil War to modern day America has been a challenging one. Early black pioneer physicians not only became skilled practitioners, they became trailblazers and educators paving the way for future physicians, surgeons, and nurses, and opening doors to better health care for the African American community.

Women physicians have excelled in many diverse medical careers. Some have advanced the field of surgery by developing innovative procedures. Some have won the Nobel prize. Others have brought new attention to the health and well-being of children. Many have reemphasized the art of healing and the roles of culture and spirituality in medicine.

The traveling exhibition "Changing the Face of Medicine: Celebrating America's Women Physicians" was developed by the Exhibition Program of the History of Medicine Division of the National Library of Medicine in collaboration with the American Library Association Public Programs Office. The traveling exhibition has been made possible by the National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health Office of Research on Women's Health. The American Medical Women's Association provided additional support.

Exhibition will be located in the HSLC Atrium. Continue to check this site for more information.
