Synergy 2019: A student-run, interdisciplinary Art Show

We are excited to announce our annual event, Synergy, that will take place on March 1st at the Kenilworth Square East! lt is our mission to connect artists and designers together, provide networking opportunities, collaboration, and introduce diversity. This year's selection of artists is impressive to say the least! Our purpose for hosting the show is all in the name; Synergy. We bring together students from across Milwaukee, and a wide range of disciplines, to showcase and sell student artwork. The show duals as a fundraiser for the AIGA – UWM Student Group and is an opportunity for young artists and designers to participate in a professional art show, which allows them to gain experience and networking skills. 

Join us for an evening of incredible emerging artists, drinks, appetizers, and networking with Milwaukee professionals.
