Father and daughter collaborate to demonstrate the various creative threads that run through their family. Garry Noland employs everyday materials such as duct tape or PVC pipe in his works of art, always emphasizing process over product. Peggy Noland directs her imagination toward fashion. She designs and makes elaborate and eye-popping wearable art supported by notable acts such as Rihanna, Lady Gaga, and Gossip. This installation will merge their worlds and highlight their shared spirit of experimentation.

This exhibition is supported in part by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin and the National Endowment for the Arts. Funding was also provided by the Kohler Trust for the Arts and Education, Kohler Foundation, Inc., and the Frederic Cornell Kohler Charitable Trust. The Arts Center thanks its many members for their support of exhibitions and programs through the year.
