Magazine

The cover of the Spring 1983 issue of Wisconsin Academy Review (today’s Wisconsin People & Ideas) featured a fold-out reproduction of Warrington Colescott’s 1982 large color intaglio print, The Hollandale Tapes: The Court Is Now in Session. As an Academy Board member in the 1980s, Colescott actively encouraged and contributed to the Academy’s work in the visual arts.

It took nearly eighty years after its founding for the Academy to give more than lip service to the arts.

Over the past few months our lives have taken a dramatic turn as vague concerns about the novel coronavirus shifted to the realization that we were facing a full-blown global pandemic.

The view of the confluence between the Mississippi and Wisconsin Rivers is a good reminder that the health of our lands and people rely upon healthy aquatic ecosystems, resilient rural communities, and clean energy.

Over the last twenty years, the Academy has worked to find promising strategies to address large-scale Wisconsin challenges.

My wife once asked me why we print photo essays in the magazine. “Photos are everywhere online and everyone has a camera these days,” she said. “So, why bother?”
