The "Epic Campus and Madison" art show focuses on Madison with a new interest in the Epic Systems Corporation Campus.
Artist Paul Briskey explains, "The campus at Epic has many fascinatingly themed buildings and interiors. Along with this, Epic was chosen as a subject because of their effect on the economy of Madison - being a billion dollar a year company and how they literally bring people from all over the world to Madison to learn their software and visit Madison. Overall though, they have an artistically impressive campus that is deserving of an artist's attention."
Briskey's "Epic Campus and Madison" exhibit will be on display at Alicia Ashman Library from November through December.
