Description

Radical Jewelry Makeover is a community engaging awareness project that promotes reuse of materials from discarded jewelry, consideration of the social and environmental impacts of mining and jewelry production, and introspection on our habits of consumption. Radical Jewelry Makeover participants will produce artwork for a competitive exhibition at the Union Art Gallery as well as online and pop-up events in the Milwaukee area. Professor Michael Bernard and Research Assistant Sarah Benforado are working to create a print catalog of “Radical Jewelry Makeover: Wisconsin” which will contain documentation of the project such as digital photography, articles by experts, and interviews. While the Radical Jewelry makeover project was established in 2007, there have not been any publications that showcase the process, effects, and importance of Radical Jewelry Makeover. Our print catalog and online research process blog will showcase the research efforts of the project, and the way relevant, intellectual work permeates the UWM undergraduate experience.
