Wi Rise Up Agenda

When: Thu., June 23 2011
The Wisconsin Supreme Court recently upheld the state’s atrocious new law to strip public employees of collective bargaining right, while teachers and other labor activists continue to dig in their heels with protests, lawsuits, and recall efforts. Art in These Times, a gallery in the offices of lefty mag In These Times, drew from those protests to put together WI Rise Up, a show of photos, screen prints, and posters that’ve come out of the struggle so far. Tonight’s opening party includes a performance from jazz group the Hard Times Trio, who perform classic labor songs; the show continues through the fall.
