The Veterans display on the 1st floor honors Department of Health Services
staff who have served in the military. The 22 Veteran’s biographies represent only a sampling of the 362 military veterans we are honored to work with every day in the Department of Health Services. The stories are inspirational and each is as unique as the veteran who tells them.
1 West Wilson continues to display photos on Floor B1 from the
“Celebration of Trees” exhibit of 14 photographs by Kathryn Lederhause.
Kathryn had retired from DHS but has returned as an LTE. She says of her
photos, “My aim is to highlight the beauty of the tree. The images are
not strictly documentary, but capture light that gives a special essence
to the images.”
Kathryn is also part of the Friends of the Arboretum Photo Group, whose
photo display continues on Floor B2. The images in their exhibit are
either photographed at the Arboretum or at other natural areas in Dane
A display on the 6th floor is by artist Nilvio Alexander Punguil Bravo. Most of his works displayed on our walls
are painted acrylics, but he works in charcoal, as well as in more
unusual media such as beer, wine and beets.
Alex has an Associate Degree in Graphic Design from Madison College and
is currently pursuing a teaching degree. “When I first came to the
United States I could not speak English so it was
difficult for me to communicate. The only way to communicate has always
been through art. I have been exposing my art around the Madison area
for the last two years, in which I have found good vibration and
motivation to keep doing it.”
