Lecture & Fine Arts Series


The mission of the Lecture & Fine Arts Series at UW-Marathon County is to bring educational, culturally-enriching, high-quality, fine arts programs to students and community members throughout the year.

A student-centered committee fulfills this mission by creating a series that enhances a respect for racial, ethnic and cultural diversity in a multi-cultural world. The series is sponsored by the UW-Marathon County Student Fee Allocation Committee. As a result, ticket prices are always affordable, making the series the best arts bargain around.

Events include concerts, artist presentations and exhibits, film showings, poetry readings, theater productions and much more! The Lecture & Fine Arts Series contracts with national caliber master-artists in all disciplines to conduct residencies, workshops and classroom presentation, in addition to public performances.

Parenting can be a challenge no matter who you are or what your circumstances, but Noël is a student parent, which presents a whole new conundrum. In the midst of this, she is fortunate to be living in a community of other student parents who are willing to be open about the strategies they use to navigate this stage of life. Her paintings reflect the reality of lives lived in homes full of family activities.
