Colescott’s print depicts the opening reception of the 1986 University of Wisconsin-Madison Department of Art faculty’s quadrennial exhibition at the Elvehjem (now the Chazen) Museum of Art. Among the multiple artists featured in the print are his departmental colleagues Don Reitz and Bruce Breckenridge, both ceramic artists; plus William Weege, known for his graphic works, Walter Hamady, for his artists books and Robert Grilley for his naturalistic painted portraits. The edition of 50 was commissioned for the 1986 Wisconsin Governor’s Award in Support of the Arts.
