The Haggerty Museum of Art—nestled on the edge of Marquette University’s beautifully landscaped Central Mall between Wisconsin and Clybourn avenues, and 12th and 13th streets—presents “Current Tendencies III.” This dynamic group exhibition features nine Milwaukee artists who are at varying points in their professional careers. Media include drawing, painting, sculpture, photography and printmaking. This year, “Current Tendencies” challenges each artist or artist team to create an installation that dialogues with one of the pieces from the Haggerty’s impressive permanent collection.

The artists are Tyanna Buie, William E. Carpenter, Evan Gruzis, Jon Horvath, Mark Mulhern, Jean Roberts Guequierre, Cassandra Smith and Jessica Steeber (in collaboration) and Jason S. Yi. “Current Tendencies” opens with an artists’ reception on Wednesday, Aug. 21, at 6 p.m. and will be up through Dec. 22. On Sept. 11, Buie and Gruzis will give a lecture on their work at 6 p.m.
