Madison Room
Fri, 05/03/2019 - 6:00pm to 10:00pm

Joining Madison Museum of Contemporary Art and the Madison art community, we're excited to once again participate in the long-time tradition of Gallery Night. All are welcome to come and view the opening of our new exhibitions at Central Library for a evening of art, community, and celebration!

THIRD FLOOR:
Luck of the Draw: Vol 2
A group show, exhibiting contemporary drawings by artists from across the county....but with a twist!
At the end of the show’s run instead of receiving their own work back, all participating artists will receive a piece created by another artist in the show. This random exchange will be determined by a live lottery that will be done on Gallery Night (5/3/19) at the Central Library in Madison, WI.

SECOND FLOOR:
Lonnie Evans

FIRST FLOOR:
Ashley Lusietto

ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE:
Taylor Wright Rushing

2014 / USA / Documentary, Biography / 121 min. / R
Acclaimed director Steve James (Hoop Dreams) and executive producers Martin Scorsese (The Departed) and Steven Zaillian (Moneyball) present LIFE ITSELF, a documentary film that recounts the inspiring and entertaining life of world-renowned film critic and social commentator Roger Ebert – a story that is by turns personal, funny, painful, and transcendent. Based on his bestselling memoir of the same name, LIFE ITSELF explores the legacy of Roger Ebert’s life, from his Pulitzer Prize-winning film criticism at the Chicago Sun-Times to becoming one of the most influential cultural voices in America.
