Artist Lecture by Mila Teshaieva

Description: For over four years, photographer Mila Teshaieva has documented the transformation of the three former Soviet republics on the shores of the Caspian Sea: Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, and Turkmenistan. The battle for control of the region's vast oil and gas reserves and the search for a national identity have led to far-reaching changes for the society and environment. Teshaieva's images reveal an atmosphere of insecurity, where people pin their hopes and expectations on a transformation whose direction remains uncertain. The project takes the viewer on a subtle and complex journey through the promises of a new oil region, raising questions as to the relationship between the state and private identity and the ties between past, present and future. The lecture will be presented at 6 p.m. in the Appellate Courtroom of Marquette University's Eckstein Hall (Law School) followed by a reception in the museum.

Souvenir

Description: Since the early twentieth century, the name Florence Foster Jenkins has produced explosions of laughter. This wealthy eccentric believed she was a great soprano when, in fact, she was incapable of producing two consecutive notes in tune. As news of her awful arias and calamitous coloratura spread, so did her celebrity. Souvenir, by turns hilarious and poignant, tells Madame Flo's story through the eyes of her accompanist and admiring friend, Cosme McMoon. She reportedly once said, "People may say I can't sing, but no one can ever say I didn't sing."

STARGIRL

Description: January brings celebrated playwright Y York's STARGIRL from January 16 - February 15, 2015, celebrating first love, individualism, and the similarities that connect us all. Adapted from the critically-acclaimed young adult novel by Jerry Spinelli, STARGIRL tells the story of how Leo Borlock's life is changed when an eccentric and fascinating homeschooler arrives at Mica Area High School. "Stargirl faces a choice - conform and take the path of least resistance or stay true to herself," said First Stage Associate Artistic Director John Maclay. "I'm not sure that there is a more important story to present to today's young people."

Ceramic Handbuilding: Trays, Tiles & Trivets

Description: A Workshop with Linda Wervey Vitamvas Register online now. Fee: $85/ $75 members (all materials included) Registration: Space is limited; advanced registration required. If you prefer to register by phone, please call 414-446-8794. You may also be interested in Ceramic Handbuilding: Porcelain Vases with Linda Wervey Vitamvas, February 23, 10 am-4 pm, or Ceramic Handbuilding: Trays, Tiles and Trivets with Linda Wervey Vitamvas, March 14, 10 am-4 pm. Working in clay is deeply satisfying, and making pottery allows one to explore aesthetics and function simultaneously. In Trays, Tiles, and Trivets we will work with porcelain slabs. The focus will be on different surface decoration techniques such as stencils, image transfer, various carving methods, and adding underglazes for color. With changes in scale and minor additions our flat designs will magically turn into functional trays, tiles and trivets. Bring textures and objects to press into the clay as well as images and designs that you would like to see take form on your pieces. They will then be fired and finished with a clear glaze to protect the surface and make them functional. Those attending more than one workshop will find plenty to do each time. Bring a bag lunch and beverages and dress for studio work as well as the outdoors. We'll be making use of Lynden's 40 beautiful acres during our breaks, weather permitting. You will need to return at a later date to pick up your pieces. About Linda Wervey Vitamvas Linda Wervey Vitamvas earned her B.S. in Nursing from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and practiced psychiatric, obstetrical and surgical nursing before returning to UWM for her M.F.A. Vitamvas has won awards in the 2009 Wisconsin Biennial, Forward: A Survey of Wisconsin Art Now, and the 2005 and 2010 Kohler Eight Counties exhibitions. Her work has been featured in the 2010 Wisconsin Triennial at the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art and in solo exhibitions at the Museum of Wisconsin Art in West Bend and at the Wisconsin Academy's James Watrous Gallery in Madison. She has also exhibited at the Milwaukee Art Museum and the Villa Terrace Decorative Art Museum as well as in ceramic arts exhibitions nationally. Linda Wervey Vitamvas has been an artist-in-residence at the Lynden Sculpture Garden.

FeederWatch Orientation at Lynden

Description: Free to members or with admission to the sculpture garden. Lynden is now a registered site for the Cornell Lab of Ornithology's Project FeederWatch. The main goal of this citizen science project is to combine the interests of backyard bird watchers with the needs of ornithologists who study bird populations. By making simple, standardized counts of the birds in their yards (or, in this case, at Lynden) and reporting them to the FeederWatch database, FeederWatchers contribute directly to the scientific understanding of bird populations. These observations help scientists study changes in the distribution and abundance of feeder birds over time. We've established a new bird feeder on the grounds, using the recommended seeds to attract birds through the seasons. We have binoculars and color charts to help us identify the birds at our feeder. Now, we need bird viewers of all ages and experience levels to join us on our siting days to help tally our observations for the project. We are planning additional programs, such as birdwalks, around the project. In the interim, you can visit the FeederWatch website and download their very useful handbook. We have designated two consecutive days each month from November through April for orientations. Once you've received this training, you can sign up for birdwatching slots by emailing Naomi Cobb at ncobb@lyndensculpturegarden.org. FeederWatch Orientation Sessions Here are our first official dates for FeederWatch orientations. Drop in anytime during the hours designated below.

Tuesdays in the Garden: A Monthly Outing for Parents & Very Small Children

Description: The 40 acres that house the Lynden collection of monumental outdoor sculpture are also home to many birds, insects, frogs, mammals and plants. Naturalist Naomi Cobb offers programs for the very young and their parents or caregivers that explore a different theme each month, taking into account the changing seasons. We limit the size of the group for these programs; therefore payments are non-refundable.

Tell Me A Story - Jennifer Angus Solo Show

Description: Jennifer Angus - Tell Me A Story Milwaukee, WI - The Villa Terrace Decorative Arts Museum, 2220 N. Terrace Avenue, Milwaukee is pleased to present Tell Me A Story, on view November 7, 2014 through February 8, 2015, with an opening reception the evening of Friday, November 7, from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m. with a special museum members only preview from 5:30 to 6:00 p.m. Jennifer Angus is best known for her installations composed of thousands of insects pinned directly to walls in repeating patterns that reference both textiles and wallpaper. Her recent work explores the narrative through works in which insects are anthropomorphized.

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.

Despite Alvin's best attempts, Paul and Hedwig were not able to come to this country and they perished in the Holocaust.
