Metro Wire Staff

The artwork of a UW-Madison graduate student will be on display at the University of Stevens Point at Wausau’s Ahrnsbrak Gallery next month.

Eva Gabriella Flynn will present “Cielitos Lindos,” or “Sweet Little Skies,” in the gallery from Monday, Feb. 4, through Friday, Feb. 22. She will offer a free talk about her work at noon, Feb. 4, in the Auditorium (Room 133) of the main campus building as well as work with art students.

The event is part of the UW-Stevens Point at Wausau Lecture and Fine Arts Series, now in its 30th year of featuring a UW-Madison art student in Wausau.

The Ahrnsbrak Gallery, located in Room 183 in South Hall, is open to the public free of charge 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

The daughter of a Mexican immigrant and a prosecutor for Homeland Security, Flynn grew up in Mexico and the United States and sees herself as part of two separate worlds. She describes her work as “a contemplation of identity tied to place, the things that make up a home, the things we take with us and the things we all share”.

Flynn has a bachelor’s degree in foreign languages and a bachelor in fine arts degree in studio art from New Mexico State University.
