Nicole Gruter is a Madison-based performance artist, musician and bartender, and Master of Fine Arts candidate from the University of Wisconsin. Nicole and her alter-ego, Wilhelmina Baker, have graced the Madison area with challenging, entertaining, slightly off-kilter works. In 2007, Nicole commissioned Prolefeed Studios to document some of her work, which we are pleased to share with you.

“Can I Get You Anything Else?” was Nicole’s entry into the 2007 University of Wisconsin’s First Year M.F.A. show. A woman tethered to a table cheerfully serves pies to puzzled art gallery patrons. Is there a deeper meaning here, or as Nicole, says is it just that, “some days it’s really hard to serve pie.”
