About the Art Gallery

When you visit the Office of Human Resources, be sure to enjoy the artwork in our Art Gallery on the 5th Floor. We established this gallery to provide a resource for artists to display their art in a public education environment. Artists include local artists, employees, instructors, students, and family or friends of UW-Madison.

There are four exhibit areas throughout the hallways. The hallways are open to the public Monday - Friday, 7:45am - 4:30pm.
