Initiatives come to UW-Madison to obtain a world-class education that will help them impact
their worlds and the world at large. What they bring with them is an incredible array of talent
that enriches UW-Madison on many artistic and expressive levels.

Nowhere is that talent more on display than during Line Breaks, a venue that allows the
students to perform and show the campus and the city their in-progress or completed
works of art.
On April 5, Shasparay Lighteard reviewed her work in the
Madison community; Tiffany Ike showed her film Emeka;
Jasmine Kiah presented the play The Help and Instructor
Natasha Oladolun presented the First Wave Poetry Showcase.
This is just a sample of the work put on display April 3-7 at the
Memorial Union’s Play Circle Theater.

UW-Madison has been infused with a whole lot o
f talent — and
intellectual curiosity for the enrichment of us all.
