The walking tour celebrates the great migration of people that made the United States a "melting pot" and will give tour-goers a deeper insight into the motives of the ethnic communities that built these extraordinary churches.

Nathaniel Stern Rippling Images

He might scan in straight, long lines across tables, tie the scanner around his neck and swing over flowers, do pogo-like gestures over bricks, or just follow the wind over water lilies in a pond. The dynamism between his body, technology, and the landscape is transformed into beautiful and quirky renderings, which are then produced as archival art objects for exhibition. For the latest in his series, Stern has worked with a team at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee to design and construct a custom, open-source, depth-rated waterproof rig, so as to scuba while scanning sub-aqueous terrain - including a live coral reef on the Gulf Coast. Here the artist folds not only time and space into his printed images, but also the impacts of water and land, life and non-life, that we perform with every day: as individuals, and as a people. The resulting artworks are full of care, thought, and wonder.

You Asked for It: BBQ Tour

Description: Milwaukeeans: YOU asked for it, and now you've got it! Each and every year, we receive requests from our tour guests asking that we create routes around particular types of food. Per your requests, we've decided to host a series of special tours doing exactly that. These limited edition tours are different than our traditional routes because: - They are offered on a very limited basis. Be sure to snap up your tickets now before the particular food genre is "retired" from this special tour series. - During the tour, we will sample only that genre of food, for example - we'll visit 4 BBQ locations. - This tour is light on history. Instead, use this tour as an opportunity to sample a particular food with like-minded individuals. - Please don't confuse this tour as a "Best of" or "Top Places" list. We'll be featuring a unique compilation of our tour guide and fellow Milwaukeean favorites, in no particular order. - These 3-hour bus tours will depart from downtown Milwaukee and feature stops at 4 - 5 locations throughout the area. Guests on this special tour will be treated to generously sized samples of the featured food item at each of the 4 - 5 stops. FALL 2014 FEATURE: BBQ Sundays - September 14, October 5 and 26, Nov. 9 Cost: $50 per person (transportation included) IMPORTANT NOTATIONS: - Although minimal walking is required, there is still walking involved. - This tour is NOT handicap accessible and attendees will need to go up/down minimal stairs to get on/off the bus multiple times.

grow Workshop with Yevgeniya Kaganovich

Description: Yevgeniya Kaganovich and her student assistants will take up residence in the studio all afternoon to make the next "planting" of grow, Kaganovich's durational installation. grow is a system of interconnected plant-like forms simulating a self-propagating organism in multiple stages of development. Created from a singular material, recycled plastic bags, the system grows over time, its growth rate determined by the number of bags accumulated in our official recycling bin. Drop in to watch or participate as Kaganovich fuses the layers of plastic to create a surface similar to leather or skin, molds the skin into plant-like volumes, stuffs the volumes with more bags, and connects the forms with plastic bag "thread." Tasks include cutting sheets and strips; fusing sheets and tubes; sewing bulb forms and connecting them to bases; crocheting tubes and necks; stuffing stalks; and assembling the plants.

Tyanna Buie: Printmaker

Description: Tyanna Buie: Printmaker August 8 - November 2, 2014 In this site-specific installation, Milwaukee artist Tyanna Buie employs a combination of screen printing, collage and ink-on-paper together with three-dimensional objects to convey her narrative of loss, impermanence, and unconventional family dynamics. Buie corrals this introspection and reflection into the gallery making the experience simultaneously personal and universal. Consciously or subconsciously, we all carry our past with us, and great art can tap into that in a constructive way. Tyanna Buie takes her past and makes something positive. Hopefully it will do the same for others. Member Sneak Peek: Thursday, August 7, 2014, 5:00-8:00 Live music | light appetizers | cash bar Artist Talk: Thursday August 28, 2014, 6:30

Alfred Leslie The Killing Cycle

Description: The year 1966 was a turning point for painter and filmmaker Alfred Leslie. That fall, a devastating fire destroyed Leslie's studio-home and all of its contents. This personal loss, as well as the death only a few months earlier of his close friend and collaborator, poet Frank O'Hara, provided fertile ground for artistic inspiration. "The Killing Cycle ..." is a series of constructed narratives that synthesize fact and fiction to describe the beach scene car crash that ended O'Hara's life. Part personal testimony and part metaphor for loss, these "painted stories" will be exhibited together for the first time in over twenty years.

Nadav Kander Yangtze The Long River

Description: Over a period of three years, Nadav Kander photographed scenes he encountered on the banks of China's Yangtze River. More people live along the Yangtze, the third longest river in the world, than in the United States. As he traveled upstream and more than 4,100 miles from the river's mouth at the coast, a high-traffic shipping port, toward The Three Gorges Dam, the largest in the world, past Chongqing, a rapidly expanding urban and economic center, to the river's source in the Himalayan mountains, Kander was struck by the human and environmental impact of China's dizzying rate of development. His photographs of the people and landscapes he encountered on his journey explore themes of impermanence and displacement, and ultimately question the price of modernity.

Stitching History From the Holocaust

Description: Visit this new and profound exhibit about the impact of the Holocaust. In 1939 Hedwig and Paul Strnad of Prague sent a letter to Milwaukee cousin Alvin Strnad pleading for help to come to the United States. They included 8 of Hedwig's dress designs to show that they would be employable here. Despite Alvin's best attempts, Paul and Hedwig were not able to come to this country and they perished in the Holocaust. The Museum has had Hedwig's dresses actually created to honor her legacy and to remember all of the talent lost in the Holocaust. Visit www.JewishMuseumMilwaukee.org for information about this special exhibit and exhibit programming.
