The Story of Roberta Avonn Fiskum

Donors: Robert and Yvonne Fiskum

Whether it was pottery, handwork, or graphic design, art played a large part in Roberta’s life, finally culminating with a graphic arts degree from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. At the time of her death, Roberta was an organist at Fontana Church, playing her last concert on July 4, 1993. A scholarship in the field of art and design has been established in her memory. Her mentor, UW-Whitewater art professor Amy Arntson, described Roberta as “an extremely creative, talented individual whose work showed a special sensitivity and intelligence.” It was the lifetime goal of Roberta to own an art gallery; therefore, her parents Robert and Yvonne Fiskum have funded this student art gallery in her memory.
