There's a formulation you hear from time to time: Madison is quite a place...for a city its size. But stick around long enough and take in enough art - art broadly defined - and you start to realize Madison artists have produced works that hold their own against what comes out of the culture capitals. Here's a by-no-means-comprehensive sampling of favorite pieces chosen by Isthmus critics.
- The Syringa Tree, American Players Theatre, 2010
- "The Chris Farley Show"
- Garbage, Garbage
- John Steuart Curry murals, UW Biochemistry Building
- Lee Hoiby, Summer and Smoke
- Marques Bovre, "Ground That I Own"
