Sue Medaris, an alumna of UW-Madison’s Art Department, recently received word that the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in Wausau, Wis., has purchased her "Taliesin Goose." Each year since 1976, the museum has organized “Birds in Art,” seeking to present the very best contemporary artistic interpretations of birds and related subject matter. Medaris, who earned her MFA from UW-Madison in 2011, reports: “Part of what makes this purchase (and just the fact that this piece got into this year’s show) so meaningful, is that I submitted the same piece last year to Birds in Art 2013, and I didn’t get in."
