Milwaukee — The American Civil Liberties Union of Wisconsin is delighted to announce that its annual Gallery Night exhibit will feature drawings by Thomas Gaudynski and prints by Nicolas Lampert.  The exhibit, “An Exploration of Privacy” is part of Gallery Night and Day, presented by the Historic Third Ward Association. The right to privacy stems from the Fourth Amendment, which touches the core of personhood and personal rights.  It guarantees that “the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated.” For more on the ACLU’s position on privacy, please visit

The opening reception will be held Friday, April 25, from 5 to 10 p.m. at the ACLU Milwaukee office, 207 E. Buffalo St., Suite 325. Food and drinks will be served. The exhibit will also be open Saturday, April 26, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event is sponsored by the Marshall Building.

About Nicolas Lampert: Nicolas is a Milwaukee-based interdisciplinary artist, author and member of arts collectives The Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative and ReciproCity.  He will share prints that document the intersection of civil rights, public persona, and political movements.  His artwork is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art and the Milwaukee Art Museum, among others.
