Afterwards, we will begin our "social", giving everyone the opportunity to meet other makers in the state. Members will be separated into two breakout sessions. First to meet other makers in their media field and then into regional groups around the state.
A Creative Place: The History of Wisconsin Art
Annemarie and fellow art scholar Tom Lidtke, a former art instructor and artist who has spent three decades leading museums and chronicling Wisconsin’s rich art history, are co-authors of the newly published book, A Creative Place: The History of Wisconsin Art.
