Adolph Rosenblatt: Life in Sculpture Opening Reception

Adolph Rosenblatt: Life in Sculpture Opening Reception

Friday, January 26, 2018
University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee Union
January 26, 2018 at 5:00 PM (Fri)
Adoph Rosenblatt took his inspiration from life and from the Milwaukee community he was a part of – its neighborhoods, people, businesses, and the stories they had to tell. From his sculptures of people, cityscapes, and places, headlines immortalized in the New York Times, to his early paintings and bronze work, a fascination with capturing the essence of what made a subject unique and personal is evident. The monumental size of his works, the color, and the figurative modeling draw you further into the piece, welcoming viewers to find the joy in everyday life that he represented. Join us in celebrating this artist and beloved UWM Professor and his immense contribution to the Milwaukee arts community in a retrospective exhibition of his work over the years.

Among the most famous political novels of all time, Animal Farm is a timeless and devastating allegory of idealism betrayed by the desire for personal power. When the animals of Manor Farm drive out their abusive farmer, they take over running the farm for themselves. Their experiment in collective leadership succeeds—until the pigs step into the vacuum of power created by the farmer’s expulsion, and betray the ideals of freedom and equality for all animals. This vibrant and moving production will breathe fresh life into a literary classic as resonant today as when it was first published.

For the last 27 years, the most famous space telescope in the world has captured the imagination of millions of people with the swirling colors of nebulae and galaxies it has photographed. During its impressive career, the Hubble Space Telescope has been instrumental in our understanding of deep space and we celebrate its accomplishments as it lays the groundwork for the James Webb Space Telescope. “Hubble’s Cosmic Quest” will highlight the most important scientific contributions and will show how the different shuttle missions enhanced its performance over the years. Take a look at some favorite Hubble images like the Crab Nebula and the majestic Sombrero Galaxy.

In our current divisive social and political landscape, the newest exhibit at the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design (MIAD) asks viewers to do what lately seems rather difficult: feel empathy. “Humanly Possible: The Empathy Exhibition” is on view in MIAD's Frederick Layton Gallery January 12 – March 3. The public reception is Friday, January 19, 5 – 9 p.m. on Winter Gallery Night. Generously supported by the Mary L. Nohl Fund of the Greater Milwaukee Foundation. Viewers are immersed in the works of 12 artists who have varied perspectives, including recent Mary L. Nohl Fellowship winner Lois Bielefeld of Milwaukee. While internalizing the experiences of others through art, viewers are challenged to engage their potential for empathy, and ultimately decide whether to exercise it. Additional programming: Thursday, February 1, 6 p.m. – Empathy Through the Visual Arts: An Artist's Discussion Thursday, February 15, 7 p.m. – Empathy, Connections and Borders: An Evening of Poetry and Storytelling Thursday, March 1, 7 p.m. – 100 Lullabies (Lullaby Songs for Syrian Refugees) MIAD's galleries are free and open to the public, Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Free gallery tours are available at miad.edu/gallerytours.

For over a century, audiences have been captivated by the tragic story of the disfigured genius who makes his home in the cavernous underground of the Paris Opera House and falls in love with Christine - the beautiful soprano he can never have. Hailed as “the finest PHANTOM of them all,” Arthur Kopit and Maury Yeston’s moving presentation digs deep into the life of this tortured soul in a show filled with romance and mystery, thrills and excitement, colors and humor, and of course, their lyrical and luxurious music. Your heart races, your soul soars, and you fall in love all over again. It is, quite simply, an unforgettable theatrical experience!

Music unites strangers and bridges racial divisions in this powerful story based on real life events. It’s 1933, and an ambitious song collector for the Library of Congress visits a Texas prison where she meets Pearl, an African-American woman with a soulful voice and steely spirit. Featuring more than a dozen beautiful a cappella renditions of spirituals and American folk songs, Black Pearl Sings! explores what it means to be a woman in a man’s world, being black in a white world, and fighting for one’s soul in a world where anyone can be a commodity. BroadwayWorld describes the play as “…a vivid reminder that the things that connect us are often stronger than the things which divide us.” All performance times and ticket prices subject to change, please visit www.MilwaukeeRep.com for up to date information.

Lakefront Brewery becomes the next home for the traveling art exhibition, Milwaukee’s Beer Line. A collection of 1950s-era photographs, the show chronicles the little known history that ties together Milwaukee’s railroading and brewing industries. Using images from the Center for Railroad Photography & Art's Wallace W. Abbey Collection, the display shines a light on the impressive railroad, the Milwaukee Road, and the blue-collar labor force that heartily supplied the city's main breweries (Schlitz, Pabst, and Blatz) along what became commonly known as the Beer Line.

J.J. Sedelmaier Productions presents The Art and Mechanics of Animation at the Grohmann Museum From its very beginning, the art and craft of film animation has been as much a part of movie history as motion picture film itself. The motion picture industry had its beginning in the 1880s, but animation production actually pre-dates this launch by a half a century with devices such as the Phenakistiscope (1833) and the Zoetrope (1834). These simple mechanical wonders allowed the viewer to experience moving images through the use of sequential exposure of a short series of registered drawings or even photographs. As the motion picture film industry advanced, so did the invention of and development of the equipment intrinsic to animation production. This exhibition chronicles over a century of the development and use of various devices and equipment that were key to the production of animated films from their beginning up to the 1990s. Fortunately, studios like New York’s Terrytoons and Fleischer Studios and, of course, The Walt Disney Studios, documented much of the behind the scenes activity in newsreels and promotional films, some of which we have as a part of this exhibition from the collection of J.J. Sedelmaier Productions, Inc., an animation and design studio located in White Plains, New York, run for over 25 years by J.J. and Patrice Sedelmaier (www.jjsedelmaier.com)

Once known as the "Brew City", Milwaukee has not seen the amount of breweries present today since the 1840's! One of the highest concentrations of these breweries can be found in the Riverwest neighborhood. Join us to discover this often overlooked neighborhood and taste some of the best beer Milwaukee has to offer.

Your tour begins at Lakefront Brewery, one of the first Micro-Breweries in Milwaukee! Lakefront began in an old bakery in Riverwest and has since grown to produce almost 50,000 barrels per year. Some of their accomplishments include the first certified organic beer in the country, the first gluten free beer recognized by the US Government, as well as what may be the first bottled fruit beer since prohibition.

Next up is Gathering Place Brewing. In an ode to the Native American meaning of our present day Milwaukee, Gathering Place creates a space to join others at the "gathering of the waters" to enjoy their vibrant and unique beers.

Moving on, we head to Black Husky Brewing. Started in a cabin way "Up North" in Pembine Wisconsin in 2010, Black Husky moved to Riverwest in 2016. Each beer is inspired by the 23 sled dogs in their kennel - including "Sproose 2" the only Spruce IPA brewed year round in the US.

Our last stop is Company Brewing. Keeping things local, Company has created a "neighborhood pale ale" brewed with hops harvested in the backyard of their neighbors! Stick around after the tour to enjoy live music or fill up on some of the food offered on their full menu.
