With the works of art acting as stand-ins for aspects of Waitzkin’s biography, Lost Library considers the role of art as a metaphor for identity. Several of the artist’s large-scale works from her Hotel Chelsea apartment environment anchor this exhibition.

 

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