UW-Eau Claire Art Department
To Host Annual Trip to Chicago

MAILED: Sept. 11, 2002

         EAU CLAIRE  The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire art department is sponsoring a trip to Chicago Friday, Nov. 8, through Sunday, Nov. 10.
         The focus of the trip, an annual event, is to expose students to a variety of exhibitions, but members of the community are also invited. Items of interest include “The Medici, Michelangelo and the Art of Late Renaissance Florence” at the Art Institute of Chicago, the work of Juan Muñoz at the Museum of Contemporary Art and the work of Charles LeDray at the Arts Club Chicago
         A bus will leave UW-Eau Claire at 8 a.m. Friday and arrive at the Cass Hotel in Chicago’s River North District, just one block from Michigan Avenue, in the early afternoon. Participants will then be free to plan their own schedule, as there is no set itinerary for the group.
         The return trip on Sunday will include a stop at the Milwaukee Art Museum, where “Leonardo Da Vinci and the Splendor of Poland” will be showing in addition to the regular collection.
         The cost, which covers lodging and transportation, is $110 for quad-occupancy rooms and $165 for double-occupancy rooms. Monday, Oct. 7, is the deadline for purchasing tickets.
An informational meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 17, in Room 105 of the Haas Fine Arts Center. For more information, call the UW-Eau Claire art department office at (715) 836-3277 or send e-mail to Bobby Pitts, associate professor of art, at
