Friends of Art History

The inspiration of two loyal Art History alumnae, the Friends of Art History (FOAH) was founded in the spring of 2000. Its purpose: to support the initiatives of the Department of Art History, especially the programming and operations of the UWM Art History Gallery. Its members are alumni, area arts educators, and art aficionados from throughout southeastern Wisconsin and beyond.

FOAH members value the Art History Gallery's pivotal role in training aspiring curators and art historians and recognize its important niche in promoting an understanding of and appreciation for art history. To show our gratitude for their financial support, FOAH members enjoy 'sneak previews' of exhibitions in the Art History Gallery, receive regular updates from the Chair of the Department of Art History, and invitations to exhibition openings, gallery talks and other special events or lectures.
