What:  In this site-specific installation, Madison artist and printmaker Jenie Gao focuses on two main subjects: the gundog and the bulldog. One represents war and violence, the other protest and speech. Both subjects are fighting for their right to live. Gao believes creativity is about connecting different ideas, people, and perspectives to find shared purpose and solve problems.
