Chazen Museum of Art



Every year, the Chazen organizes and presents between ten and twelve temporary exhibitions. These may be drawn from significant areas of the museum's own collection, designed to showcase the work of a notable living regional or national artist, or loans to the museum from institutions around the world. Faculty and graduate students from UW–Madison or another institution may organize an exhibition in their area of expertise if it pertains to the museum collections or the campus academic programs.

In the expansion, there are new galleries dedicated to temporary exhibitions on the first and second floors, allowing all the third- and fourth-floor galleries to be devoted to the permanent collection.

To accompany the exhibitions and enrich visitors' experience, the museum offers complementary educational programming including lectures, artist talks, films, receptions, docent tours, family activities, and other events. Go to the individual exhibition page or the events calendar for more on our current programs.
