Tom Uttech

Merrill 1942

In many ways, Uttech is the poster child for Wisconsin art. In his practice, he taps into and combines elemental qualities of much of the art associated with the state and the region, such as landscape, lore, and visionary fantasies. He spent thirty years—1968 – 98—as an art professor at the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee. His solo exhibitions are numerous and his work can be found in leading museums such as Crystal Bridges in Arkansas and the Smithsonian American Art Museum. MOWA’s comprehensive holdings also include Uttech’s photography.
