20 Homecomings Exhibit in Library's Grand Corridor

An exhibit by university photographer Rick Mickelson chronicles the past 20 years of UW-Eau Claire Homecoming celebrations. The exhibit, entitled "20 Homecomings," is now on display in the McIntyre Library's Grand Corridor from Sept. 4 through this year's Homecoming, scheduled for Oct. 5-6. Approximately 40 prints, 16 inches by 20 inches in size, will be featured.

Mickelson's first day on the job at UW-Eau Claire was Homecoming Day 1988. Armed with a camera he had never used before and a long list of photos to be taken during the day, he quickly got his feet wet.

“Since then, Homecoming has been a special workday for me, and 2007 marks the completion of two decades' worth of documenting UW-Eau Claire Homecoming celebrations,” Mickelson said.

The exhibit is co-sponsored by the university's Learning and Technology Services, Alumni Association and Foster Gallery.
