University workshop encourages students to channel their inner chicken

Linda Mary Montano, aka the ‘Chicken Woman,’ to lead two days of events focused on contemporary performance artistry

For the poultry inclined, the University of Wisconsin-Madison is set to host a workshop that will allow students to “walk and bawk” like a chicken, and even dress up like one.

While it’s scheduled for October, it has nothing to do with Halloween.

The event is one part of a two-day exhibition Oct. 1 and 2 to be overseen by contemporary feminist performance artist and University of Wisconsin-Madison alum Linda Mary Montano, aka the “Chicken Woman.”

The chicken-channeling workshop is billed as an “exploration of methods to empty out nightly news mind and appreciate an alternative consciousness,” a description of the event states.

“Wear loose clothing, and dress in all one color if you wish or come as a chicken. Bring something to lie down on,” the description adds. “Walk & bawkkk with Chicken Woman to the Agriculture Department. Maybe we will see the chickens.”

“It’s a homecoming, bawk bawk,” Montano said in a telephone interview with The College Fix.

The two day event is called “The Return of Chicken Woman: Linda Mary Montano Flies Home” and also includes an artist talk and performance.

“Come and visit with Chicken Woman. Ask any question about your art or life. Receive a chicken drawing,” the invite states.

The “Art + Scholarship” presentation is part of the university’s effort to provide a variety of programming for the campus community, Meredith McGlone, UW director of news and media relations, told The College Fix in an email.

“Every day the university offers a wide variety of events, from workshops highlighting the latest scientific discoveries to arts programming both classical and progressive,” she said. “UW allows this event because it is in keeping with educational goals and the Wisconsin Idea of being good global citizens, concerned about farmers, the food we eat, and appreciating the artistry and beauty of nature.”
