About the exhibition: 
Though Bielefeld is known for her portraiture, this new series takes that interest a step further. Here, she documents her daughter’s high school cross country team over a full season of workouts, races, team-building activities, and camping trips. The series reveals a roller coaster of emotions and physical ordeals that tells a captivating story of growth and accomplishment, while also helping us revisit our past lives as teenagers navigating the landscape of friendship, group dynamics, and team sports.

Exhibition runs: Thursday, July 20, 2017 to Sunday, October 22, 2017

About the Charles Allis Art Museum:
Designed by prominent Milwaukee architect Alexander Eschweiler for Charles Allis, the first president of Allis Chalmers, and his wife Sarah in 1911, this unique Tudor-style mansion and art collection was built with the sole purpose of bequeathing it to the public to delight, educate and inspire.  The permanent collection features 19th Century French and American Paintings, Chinese and Japanese porcelains, Renaissance bronzes, Japanese netsuke, and original antique furnishings.
