Exhbit continues through October 27, 2017. In January of 2012 while recovering from a near fatal car accident, Mark Hirsch purchased his first iPhone. He was encouraged by a friend to treat his new iPhone like his professional cameras. The first picture he took with his new iPhone was a photo of That Tree. He was instantly hooked! Mark had driven past and admired That Tree every day for nineteen years without ever taking a picture of it. This experience inspired Mark to embark on a unique adventure of making a photo-a-day of this lone bur oak tree in a Wisconsin cornfield. The year-long project was completed on March 23, 2013. That Tree, the fitting title of a full-color hardcover book, is published by Press Syndication Group (PSG). Mark regularly exhibits his photos of That Tree in galleries, and his story has been featured by many worldwide media organizations including CBS Sunday Morning, NBC News, The Sierra Club, Huffington Post, The Guardian, Le Monde, Chicago Tribune, Denver Post, San Francisco Chronicle, The Daily Mail (UK), and many more. Mark Hirsch is an editorial and corporate photographer, artist, and an inspiring public speaker based out of the unlikely place of Dubuque, Iowa. He spent twenty years in the newspaper industry as a photojournalist, photo editor, and visuals editor until ultimately embarking on a freelance career in 2006. His clients include Getty Images, The New York Times, and John Deere Corporation. Mark lives one mile from That Tree with a shaggy but lovable dog, Magnum. When not lying in a sea of cold trying to capture photographs of That Tree, Mark enjoys spending his time mountain biking, and hiking in the hills and valleys near his Platteville, Wisconsin home.

Firelines by Jill Metcoff

Exhbit continues through October 27, 2017.

Photographer Jill Metcoff has been captivated by fire--in the form of controlled burning--since 1998. She is passionate about our environment, a concern which led her to this photographic project. Firelines has as its theme the transformation of the American landscape by fire. "Controlled burns" of forest, savanna, wetland, and prairie lead to regeneration, a practice going back millennia. Her photographs freeze-frame this process, catching in a split second the moment when fire is actor and conductor of change.

The ephemeral forms that fire takes as it sweeps through the landscape of southwest Wisconsin, renewing patchworks of prairie, forest, and savanna, are the subject of her book, Firelines. She pairs her photographs from controlled burns with historical commentary, poetic reflections, and her own observations to construct a vibrant narrative of prose and imagery. Firelines brings us intimately close to the power, swiftness, and mystery of the purposeful use of fire as practiced over millennia.

Our Wisconsin Environment - the Driftless Area

Presentation and Reading by Curt Meine and Keefe Keeley This program on the Driftless Area is intended to set the stage for the next four days of music. This region is home to a disproportionate array of extraordinary artists. Does this beautiful land inspire beautiful art and music? Is music made more beautiful when played in this region? The Driftless Reader is a publication of the University of Wisconsin Press and edited by Curt Meine and Keefe Keeley. Meine and Keeley have selected writings that highlight the unique natural and cultural history, landscape, and literature of this region encompassing southwestern Wisconsin and adjacent Minnesota, Iowa, and Illinois. The more than eighty selected texts include writings by Black Hawk, Mark Twain, Laura Ingalls Wilder, Frank Lloyd Wright, Aldo Leopold, David Rhodes, and many other Native people, explorers, scientists, historians, farmers, songwriters, journalists, and poets. Paintings, photographs, maps, and other images complement the texts, providing a deeper appreciation of this region's layered natural and human history.

Gin, Chocolate and Bottle Rockets

Named "Ensemble Vocalists of the Year" at the 2015 Madison Area Music Awards, Gin, Chocolate, and Bottle Rockets members Beth Kille, Shawni Marks, and Jen Farley combine forces and the musical styles of three veteran solo-artists-turned-bandmates in a power pop-rock trio. A little sass, a little sweet, and a whole lot of fire are woven into their tight three-part harmonies, solid acoustic guitar/piano/percussion, vocals, and clever songwriting ranging from edgy to fun. Which one is gin, which one is chocolate, and which one is the bottle rocket? You decide.

Robbie Fulks and His Band

Lost in the deserved accolades for being a fabulously unique, clever, and heartfelt writer is the fact that Robbie Fulks is also one of the best guitarists around. He can whip out songs in honky-tonk, country, bluegrass, power pop, or whatever strikes his ample whimsy at the time. As a skilled storyteller in song, his stories embody both richness and simplicity. This alternative country singer-songwriter, and instrumentalist is quickly putting himself all over the musical map. His 13 albums include the influential early "alternative country" classic Country Love Songs, the widely acclaimed Gone Away Backward, and, most recently, Upland Stories. He was nominated for two 2017 Grammy awards: Best Folk Album (Upland Stories) and Best American Roots Song (Alabama at Night), and has performed on Austin City Limits, A Prairie Home Companion, The Grand Ole Opry, The Today Show, Late Night with Conan O'Brien, and 30 Rock. He was named to NPR's and Rolling Stone's Best of 2016 lists.

Shaun Hopper

Acoustic "fingerstyle" guitar player/wizard Shaun Hopper is at first glance an unassuming presence. Along with his rugged good looks, he's a true southern gentleman whose humility stands in sharp contrast to the prodigious talents he unveils on stage. Merging complex melodic lines, harmony and bass lines along with a one-of-a-kind percussive technique, he mesmerizes everyone within earshot. Weaving in humorous tales from his small town Georgia roots along with an occasional glimpse into his "backwoods" upbringing, he stirs his audience with both humor and introspection. Dazzling audiences with his fiery originals and covering everything from Chet Atkins to Andre Segovia and from The Beatles to Queen, Shaun never fails to captivate audiences. Whether his listeners are guitar enthusiasts or not matters little, within a few seconds they soon realize that they are listening to a true virtuoso; a rare jewel in the tapestry of music scenes around the world.
