About every four years, the museum hosts an exhibition of current work by the UW–Madison Art Department faculty, affiliates, and emeriti. Compendium 2012 represents the breadth and scope of contemporary art today and highlights the diversity of this dynamic faculty. Work by 34 current faculty, staff, and affiliates, as well as 12 emeritus faculty, showcases the vibrant talent and history of the department. Art faculty will also give 40-minute talks about their current work.
