Chazen Publications

The Chazen’s publishing program includes exhibition catalogues, gallery guides, Artscene, and calendars, as well as podcasts and videos. Thanks to the UW–Madison Libraries, nearly everything published by the museum prior to 2014 has been digitized and is available online in the Digital Collection. There you’ll find exhibition catalogues, gallery guides, annual reports, and newsletters; you can also read publications stretching back to the museum’s earliest days.

In the time of COVID, we want to give you access to as much of the Chazen as we can, so here is our pilot podcast episode, hosted by art historian and radio producer Gianofer Fields. This podcast chooses one artwork at the Chazen and investigates everything about it, taking advantage of the experts on campus.
