SafeHouse Milwaukee Presents: Tales of the Cold War

SafeHouse Milwaukee Presents: Tales of the Cold War

Sunday, July 23, 2017
SafeHouse Restaurant & Bar
July 23, 2017 at 11:00 AM (Sun)
Real-life spies have a long and storied history operating throughout the world. To honor two of these spies, SafeHouse Restaurant & Bar will be hosting a presentation and conversation with the son of real-world spy Francis Gary Powers, and former prisoner of war, Werner Juretzko, on Sunday, July 23 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. During the event, the two men will talk about experiences and operations that happened during the Cold War. Powers, Jr., is the son of Francis Gary Powers, the famous CIA U-2 pilot who was shot down and captured by Soviets on May 1, 1960, and whose story was portrayed in the Steven Spielberg film, Bridge of Spies. On July 23, Powers, Jr. will share the first-hand account of his father’s life as a high-profile prisoner using letters and a journal his father kept during his time in captivity. These letters and personal journal were recently published in a limited-edition printing of 500 copies and will be available for purchase at the event, as well. This event will also include a presentation by Werner Juretzko, a former G-2 Intelligence Service Operative for the U.S. Army who was arrested in action in 1955 by the KGB and Stasi during an authorized military espionage mission in East Germany. Juretzko endured five months of brutal interrogations in Berlin-Hohenschönhausen, the KGB’s secret underground interrogation prison, and was sentenced to 13 years in prison in a secret trial. He served six years of that term in maximum security prisons throughout East Germany until he was released in 1961. During his talk at the SafeHouse, Juretzko will discuss the parallels between his real-life experiences and those portrayed in the film, Bridge of Spies, which features scenes filmed in Berlin-Hohenschönhausen. On display at the SafeHouse is an original cell door from the underground KGB/Stasi interrogation prison that housed Juretzko. In fact, he met his former enemy, KGB Major General Oleg Kalugin, in front of this same door several years ago, along with SafeHouse founder and former station chief, David Baldwin, a.k.a. Agent OH-OH-7. In addition to hearing from Powers, Jr. and Juretzko, attendees can enjoy a catered SafeHouse buffet that includes a non-alcoholic beverage of choice. This one-of-a-kind look into the true-life experiences of two Cold War spies, with lunch included, costs $25 per person (applicable tax and service charge apply).

Shakespeare in the Park,

Shakespeare in the Park, "Much Ado About Nothing"

July 6, 2017 - July 22, 2017
Peck Pavilion / Marcus Center for the Performing Arts
July 21, 2017 at 8:00 PM (Fri)
July 22, 2017 at 8:00 PM (Sat)
Much Ado About Nothing follows the sixteenth century popular tradition of stories of lovers mistakenly believing one another unfaithful. Shakespeare had plentiful source material on which to draw when he set his own version down in around 1598. The comedy achieved immediate and enduring popularity, offering a precursor to our modern day “screwball” romantic comedies. The play features characters entangled by some combination of family, romance and competitive envy. Running the gamut from sly pranks and slapstick to heartbreaking betrayal, Shakespeare animates main characters Beatrice and Benedick’s roller-coaster relationship with particularly clever wordplay and complex emotions. Price: FREE -- we'll gratefully accept your donations, but there is no ticket price. How does it work? The house opens at 6:00 p.m. (10:00 a.m. for the matinee). Show up after that time and find an unreserved seat and put your stuff there to hold it. Be warned that if you claim a seat before 6:00, it is possible that you'll have chosen a seat reserved by one of our members, and and house staff may ask you to select another seat. -----> Interested in becoming a member, reserving a seat and enjoying a full year of other member perks to thank you for your support?

The church basement kitchen throughout much of America is often the heart and soul of any church. In CHURCH BASEMENT LADIES we meet the pastor, three cooks and one daughter who run the kitchen and care for the congregation. As in any kitchen, problems arise. We watch as the four women handle a Lutefisk Dinner, a funeral, an Easter Fund Raiser, and, of course, a wedding. They stave off potential disasters, have loads of fun, share and debate recipes, instruct the young, and keep the pastor on a steady course.

Rashid Johnson: Hail We Now Sing Joy presents new paintings and sculptures by Chicago native Rashid Johnson (b. 1977), who uses materials such as shea butter, black soap, and white ceramic tile to explore themes of race, identity, and escape. Fourteen works fill the exhibition space at the Milwaukee Art Museum—their impact as monumental as their size. Antoine’s Organ, the largest of the artist’s architectural grid installations ever shown in the United States, conceals a piano that musicians will perform at scheduled times. Forbes called Johnson “one of the four or five most important contemporary American artists.”

Milwaukeeans demanded & Milwaukee Food & City Tours delivered with the creation of a tour dedicated solely to highlighting the “custard capital of the world.” On the tour you will visit the shops & stands that have been institutions throughout Milwaukee’s historic communities. Guests will be treated to:
  • Butter burger and fries at an iconic MKE diner (you will have opportunity to put ketchup, mustard, relish on, if so desired)
  • 3 generously sized custard portions
  • round-trip transportation
  • guided tour fun
“Custard’s unique characteristics that make it creamier, softer and often times more flavorful than ice cream are what make it such an enjoyable and requested summer treat – especially with out-of-town tour guests,” said Theresa Nemetz, owner of Milwaukee Food & City Tours. “Milwaukee has so many fantastic custard vendors that the tour theme was an obvious addition for our company.” RECENT REVIEWS Custard Galore! "The custard places we went to were very generous and filling. I didn't need to eat supper after all of the custard. One place added a quarter of a hamburger and another added french fries. Both of these treats added some welcome saltiness to the custard. Our bus was comfortable and Jean, our leader, was informative, friendly, and enthusiastic all through our afternoon together. She made strangers feel welcome with each other. In addition to the delicious custard we had an afternoon of laughs and friendly companions." This tour was wonderful! "The serving size of custard at each place was a full single size so I was extremely full by the end of the tour! I'm a local but was introduced to at least one frozen custard place that I never knew existed and turned out to be my favorite of all of them. I would definitely recommend this tour for an afternoon of frozen custard tasting." The 2.5-hour bus tour departs from downtown Milwaukee and feature stops at four custard stands throughout the area while enjoying stories of Milwaukee en route. 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. Tastings - All tastings are included in the price. Portions are often served family-style. Samples are substantial - for the vast majority of attendees, you will not need to plan for a meal after the tour!

Wisconsin artist Jessica Calderwood blends a background in metalsmithing, and a specific interest in enameling, with a desire to investigate the social and cultural dynamics of contemporary society. Her work of the last decade—jewelry, sculpture, and wall reliefs that often combine images of plants and humans—has emphasized the construction, development, and articulation of femininity and identity.

 

With her installation for RAM’s Windows on Fifth Gallery, Calderwood uses enamel, felt, polymer, and porcelain to magnify her exploration of gender. By including multiple figures and expanding her use of floral forms to more “aggressive and surprising” subject matter, she is able to address complex topics such as the relationship between the beautiful and the absurd, the powerful and the powerless, and the feminine and masculine.
