FREE MONEY
The second exhibition of the Milwaukee Artist Resource Network’s MARNSalon 2012/2013 exhibition series, opens Friday Oct. 5, 2012, (6-8pm) at the MARN Gallery (5407 W Vliet St, Milwaukee), and will run through Saturday Nov. 3. MARN will also host a public critique for the exhibition on Saturday, Oct. 13, from 11am-2pm. All are welcome to attend and join the conversation. This exhibition is made possible in part by support from the Greater Milwaukee Foundation's Mary Nohl Fund.

In response to an exhibition purview posed by guest curator Michelle Grabner which addresses modes of instilling and assessing philosophical, functional, and monetary value in contemporary art and art practice, curatorial protege Ana Hansa-Ogren (under the mentorship of Jennifer Johung) has selected the work of four Milwaukee based artists whose practices address this line of inquiry through a diverse array of conceptual and formal means: Laci Coppins, Ginger Lukas, Ashley Morgan, and Eddie Villanueva.

About MARN and the MARNsalons Exhibition Series:
The MARNsalons Committee is comprised of Sara Daleiden, Ana Hansa-Ogren, Cynthia Henry, Jennifer Johung, and Jessica Steeber.  Through their work on the MARNsalons Exhibition Series, this group seeks to connect artists within the local and national art community by establishing relationships between creatives and professionals working in Milwaukee, Chicago, L.A., New York and beyond. Through engagement with the MARNsalons program artists are granted a valuable level of exposure and the chance to develop both creative and professional aspects of their practices.

MARN aims to strengthen and support the Milwaukee arts community by offering artists and art professionals opportunities to expand critical discourse and enliven development in art and curatorial practice on a local level, while engaging nationally recognized curators in a globally relevant dialogue.
