The University of Wisconsin-Stout School of Art and Design is sponsoring the biannual custom light fixture exhibit “Illuminate” at the Mabel Tainter Center for the Arts.

The free student exhibit, in the lower level gallery, features works that reflect 18 periods in art and design history. It runs through Monday, Nov. 28.

A total of 24 students are displaying works created in the Lighting Design class taught by assistant professor Julie Peterson. The students are art majors, with an interior design concentration.

The exhibit helps students prepare to “design effective lighting solutions for people within a variety of interior environments. This project truly has them apply what they have been learning about for the first half of the semester,” Peterson said.
