The 89th Annual Student Art Show, sponsored by the WUD Art Committee, is the University of Wisconsin-Madison's longest-running celebration of student artists and a beloved campus tradition. It offers all UW-Madison students the opportunity to enter their work in a competitive juried exhibition. 

The mission of the Wisconsin Union Art Collection and Art Program is to cultivate an interest in art among all students, faculty, staff and Union members by making art an integral part of their use of the Wisconsin Union and to encourage and recognize creative endeavors by students.

The 89th Annual Student Art Show is featured in Gallery 1308 at Union South from February 24 through April 17, 2017.
