In partnership with the Wisconsin Foundation and Alumni Association, the Line Breaks Opening Reception will feature refreshments, light catering, bar, and DJ. Throughout the space, we will install an exhibition of First Wave visual and design artists to present and discuss their work with guests.

The programme for the reception will take place 5:30 – 6:30 p.m., where we will host WAA’s Wisconsin Idea Spotlight Panel, featuring key First Wave alumni Danez Smith, Shasparay Lighteard, and Erika Dickerson-Despenza; Professor Chris Walker, founding Faculty Artistic Director of OMAI, and Director of the Division of the Arts; and Dr. LaVar Charleston, Deputy Vice Chancellor for Diversity and Inclusion, Vice Provost and Chief Diversity Officer at UW–Madison.
