Look here! is a collaboration between the UWM Libraries and artists from RedLine Milwaukee and the UWM Peck School of the Arts. Organized by Ann Hanlon, Marc Tasman, and Max Yela, the project asks artists to create works that reimagine, transform, and engage with the Libraries' unique archival, special, and digital collections in ways that bring new light and creative perspectives to these rare and unique materials.

Participating Artists
Jake Hill, Madeline Martin, Jill Sebastian, Dara Larson, Cynthia Hayes, Nirmal Raja, Marc Tasman, Clayton Haggarty, Anja Sieger, Melissa Wagner-Lawler, Stephanie Copoulos-Selle, Laj Waghray, Rebecca Holderness, and Andrew Miller.
