The event begins at 11:00 AM with a Memorial Service in our Historic Landmark Chapel followed by the laying of a memorial wreath in the Garden of Honor. From 11:30 AM - 2:30 PM wander thru the cemetery grounds and speak with our re-enactors in period costume who are portraying individuals buried here at Forest Home who had some connection to the Civil War. (In honor of the 150th Anniversay of the end of the Civil War.) At 2:00 PM take a one hour guided walking tour through the cemetery and learn about the history of the cemetery, the art and symbolism of the monuments and memorials, as well as see the famous Beer Baron's Corner. If you get hungry there will be plenty of Usinger brats/hot dogs, chips and soda for sale in the Victorian Garden. 100% of the food proceeds go to Forest Home Historic Preservation Association, Inc. to help maintain the beauty of the cemetery.

USA Ultimate 2015 Division 1 College Championships

Description: USA Ultimate, Inc. and Milwaukee Ultimate Club, Inc. are pleased to announce that Milwaukee will be host to the 2015 USA Ultimate Division 1 College Championships on May 22-25, 2015 at Uihlein Soccer Park. This tournament will be host to the top 20 men's and top 20 women's Division 1 college teams from across the country, who have successfully advanced from their respective sectional and regional qualifiers for the right to compete for the national championship for Division 1 College Ultimate. This 4-day event will feature some of the top college athletes in the country who will represent their schools in one of the most exciting and physically demanding sports at the collegiate level. Competition begins on Friday May 22 with pool play, followed by bracket play, and culminating with the championship games on Monday May 25. Television coverage of the tournament will broadcast throughout the weekend by ESPN. For up to date information on tournament brackets, teams, game times, and scores, please visit the USA Ultimate website. What is Ultimate? Combining the non-stop movement and athletic endurance of soccer with the aerial passing skills of football, a game of Ultimate is played by two teams with a flying disc or Frisbee on a field with end zones, similar to football. The object of the game is to score by catching a pass in the opponent's end zone. A player must stop running while in possession of the disc, but may pivot and pass to any of the other receivers on the field. Ultimate is a transition game in which players move quickly from offense to defense on turnovers that occur with a dropped pass, an interception, a pass out of bounds, or when a player is caught holding the disc for more than ten seconds. Ultimate is governed by Spirit of the Game , a tradition of sportsmanship that places the responsibility for fair play on the players rather than referees. Ultimate is played in more than 80 countries by an estimated 7 million of men and women, girls and boys. The international governing body, WFDF, represents 59 member associations in 56 countries.

All Shook Up

Description: Join us for The Fireside premiere of this rocking, rollicking musical comedy featuring the songs of the King of rock and roll - Elvis Presley. No tight pants, no kissing and no loud music. Those are the rules in one small Midwestern 1950's town. But then a stranger comes to town- a rebellious, guitar-playing, hip swiveling roustabout (who bears a striking resemblance to the King himself). All at once everything changes - young love blooms, unspoken dreams begin to come true, and the once quiet little town is turned upside down in this hilarious, tuneful, high-stepping, award-winning Broadway romp featuring laughs, romance, thrilling dances, and a host of your favorite Presley classics such as "Jailhouse Rock," "Hound Dog," "Heartbreak Hotel," "Blue Suede Shoes," "Don't Be Cruel," "Burning Love" and many, many more!

More on Less: The History of Burlesque in America

Description: More on Less: The History of Burlesque From Lydia Thompson to Amber Ray presents the history of burlesque in America surveying its cultural influence and artistic development from the milestone performances that popularized its early stars, to the legislative and political backlash that undermined them, and ultimately, to the advent of Neo-Burlesque and the rise of a new set of burlesque icons. Stars like Gypsy Rose Lee, Sally Rand, Lili St. Cyr, Rose La Rose, Tempest Storm, Jennie Lee, Dixie Evans, Ann Corio, and contemporary performers Dita von Teese and Amber Ray are all on display, represented in photographs, costumes, advertisements, playbills, posters, vintage footage, sheet music, art, and autobiographies. Authentic costumes, both historic and contemporary, are major highlights of the exhibition. Ann Corio's 1970s jade chiffon gown, worn in HBO's 1988This Was Burlesque, pairs with more recent designs by international performer Amber Ray. Costumes and other materials will also represent the history of men in burlesque, covering the trope of the straight man to the "top banana" comics like Bert Lahr. Works by major artists are also included, demonstrating the appeal of burlesque, its dancers, and its audiences as subjects for modern painters and photographers. Reginald Marsh, Garry Winogrand and Ed Paschke are included, along with rarely-seen work by Milwaukee artist Charles Thwaites. This exhibition draws on national and Wisconsin collections to tell an American story with a local focus. Lenders to the exhibition include the Burlesque Hall of Fame; Burlyqnell - the Janelle Smith Collection; Steven Daiter Gallery, Chicago; Kiechel Fine Art, Omaha, Nebraska; Alan Koppel Gallery, Chicago; Milwaukee County Historical Society; Milwaukee Public Library, Museum of Wisconsin Art, and the Theatre Historical Society of America, among many others.

Private Spaces, Public Authority

Description: Built in the 1880s, the home designed for Elizabeth Plankinton on Milwaukee's Grand Avenue followed the leading trends of that decade, appointed with ornament from America's leading suppliers of interior decoration. This was a decade when Aesthetic principles, encapsulated in the mantra "art for art's sake," reached their height in this country, having sailed across the Atlantic with Oscar Wilde, spread nationwide with his lecture tour that stressed the value of artful decoration. The focus of this decorative impulse was the home. Artists and designers, local and national, turned their attention to the seemingly prosaic: glass windows, ceramic tile, wallpapers, and even firebacks. The moral and physical loci of the aesthetic home was the Hearth, and it is at the center of this display of architectural salvage, an exhibition organized in partnership with the Milwaukee Housing Authority, which owns the collection. The exhibition presents this collection of woodwork, metalwork, ceramics and glass that broadly outlines Aesthetic era principles and designs. The objects come from local firms like Matthews Bros. and also internationally-known companies like J & J.G. Low Art Tile of Massachusetts, Belcher Mosaic Glass of New Jersey, and Hollins & Minton of Stoke-on-Trent, England. Tracing objects from their creation, to their private installation and subsequently to their deinstallation and public salvage, Villa Terrace, itself a repurposed lakeside mansion, explores the possibilities of repurposing old things for new ways of living.

Kiki's Paris

Description: The David Barnett Gallery presents Kiki's Paris, an exhibition inspired by the book about the famous Parisian model who worked and lived in Paris from 1900-1930 when Paris was the center of the art world. An opening reception will be held on Gallery Night & Day, Friday, April 17, 2015 from 5:00pm to 9:00pm and Saturday, April 18, 2015 from 11:00am to 5:00pm. The gallery is located at 1024 E. State St. at Prospect Ave. in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. KIKI'S PARIS re-creates the experience of being part of what Marcel Duchamp called "the first really international colony of artists we ever had". The quarter mile area on the Left Bank around the intersection of Boulevard du Montparnasse and Boulevard Raspail offered none of the traditional tourist attractions of Paris; what brought a generation of artists, writers and pleasure-seekers to the terraces of the Montparnasse cafes was the promise of personal freedom and self-fulfillment. At the center of Montparnasse life was Kiki. In Ernest Hemingway's words "She was very wonderful to look at. Having a fine fact to start with she had made of it a work of art. She had a wonderfully beautiful body and a fine voice and she certainly dominated that era of Montparnasse more than Queen Victoria ever dominated the Victoria era". Kiki, indeed, was the queen of the artists' quarter that was the dream and destination of millions of people in the 1920's; and she has come to symbolize everything Montparnasse had to offer. Tracing its beginning to a hill, Montparnasse, from which Sorbonne students declaimed their poetry, Montparnasse in the 19th century attracted academic artists and their students. From 1900 to 1930, Montparnasse was the center of artistic life for the whole world. The artists, writers and composers who were there - Apollinaire, Leger, Miro, Cocteau, Joyce, Modigliani, Brancusi, Pound, Satie, Calder, Duchamp, Matisse, Hemingway, Mondrian, Man Ray, Pascin, Picasso, Soutine, Stravinsky, Stein and countless others have created modern culture as we know it. For KIKI'S PARIS, the authors have chosen from thousands of photographs of the time and interviewed artists and models who were in Montparnasse in the 1920's. Many of the photographs in the book are by well-known artists, among them Man Ray, Berenice Abbott, Andre Kertesz and Jean Cocteau; others have never been published before or have not been seen since the twenties. The text is concise and revealing, emphasizing accuracy and adherence to fact. KIKI'S PARIS is a major contribution to the social and art history of the period. Its unique combination of photographs and text conveys the reality and flavor of our century's greatest experiment in freedom. Artists include: Man Ray, Miro, Matisse, Max Ernst, Mucha, Bonnard, Manet, Tanguy, Pissarro, Calder, Villon, Picasso, Gauguin, Hermine David, Kees Van Dongen, Derain, Marcel Duchamp, Delacroix, Renoir, Masson and Chagall. The exhibit will run through July 18, 2015. The David Barnett Gallery provides professional art consultation, appraisals, restoration and conservation, framing, lighting, custom giclee printing, delivery, and installation services. The gallery's Van Go mobile art service brings artwork to residences and offices for "on location" selection. Viewing hours at the David Barnett Gallery are 11:00am to 5:30pm Tuesday through Friday, 11:00am to 5:00pm Saturday, or by appointment. For further information, please call (414) 271-5058.

A Whole Other World: Sub-Culture Craft at the Racine Art Museum

Description: This summer, Racine Art Museum explores the intersection of art with cultural subjects that inspire devoted "fan" followings. This exhibition specifically addresses the science fiction and fantasy-based themes of Doctor Who, Star Wars, Superheroes, and Steampunk. Each of these subjects all linked to history, imagination, fact, and fiction in their own particular ways has become the subject of artworks, DIY craft, and major projects. Focusing on work directly inspired by these themes, or by the winding of these kinds of topics in and out of popular culture, A Whole Other World features a variety of objects and images, from quilts to prints to sculpture. RAM encourages visitors to come dressed in character to receive free museum admission.

Art For The Cause: French Posters from the First World War

Description: As in the United States, France solicited the support of its citizenry, both moral and financial, through large-format posters displayed in the windows of publicly- and privately-owned venues. Countries on both sides of the Atlantic commissioned leading artists and illustrators to provide the poster designs and drawings. Despite their common intentions, the French posters took on a more tragic character than their American counterparts, reflecting the devastation of the landscape and on the lives of soldiers and their families. The exhibition is an opportunity for CAVT Museums, until recently a body under the War Memorial Corporation umbrella, to reflect on the turbulence of warfare and its portrayal in original works by the likes of Francisque Poulbot and Steinlen. Gathered by Harriet Earling Fitch during the war years and after, the collection is a physical embodiment of an American philanthropist's longstanding relationship with a foreign country. Long before the entrance of the United States into the conflict, Harriet Fitch (later Thwaits Dake) organized and directed the Milwaukee chapter of the Fatherless Children of France and was instrumental in the founding of the Foster Mothers of America. Both organizations and Harriet Earling Fitch's philanthropic work focused on the care and support of the millions of children left fatherless by one of the deadliest conflicts in world history. For her efforts, she was awarded the Legion of Honor from the French government; her medal will be on display in the exhibition, along with archival news clippings that outline her achievements in her charitable and philanthropic work. About 20 posters, generously lent by the family of Thomas Van Alyea Jr., will go on display in the museum's great hall in this small exhibition held 100 years following World War I.
