The Museum of Wisconsin Art in West Bend is opening a photographic exhibition this weekend featuring the work of Dick Blau from Milwaukee.
Blau was a collaborator on a book in 1992 called Polka Happiness, and his latest public work is a series of large photographs capturing Wisconsin's polka scene. Blau and longtime polka chronicler Rick March stopped by 25 dances in 2013. That journey led to this rare photo display, polka style. Blau talked to Ken Krall about the challenges and pure joy he experienced doing the work.
The Northwoods is full of experts and artists you might not expect to find in a rural area. If you drive along the right road in Arbor Vitae, you might find yourself in a fine book bindery called Atelier.
Florian Bieschke’s workshop, like book binding itself, is a collection of small and precise details.
“This is the bindery, as small as it is," he says. "We heat it by just getting more people in – five or six people and we can turn the heaters off!”
Someone who stopped by Trig's in Minocqua is $40,000 richer.
The Wisconsin Lottery office announced a ticket sold at Trig's Food and Drug in Minocqua matched four out of five Powerball numbers and with a multiplier number resulted in a $40,000 prize. Another $40,000 prize was won in Kenosha and a $10,000 prize in Menasha.
No one won the Powerball jackpot which has grown to $230 million dollars for the national drawing.
Winners have 180 days to validate their tickets by mail or in person at the Lottery’s Madison or Milwaukee offices.
It’s common to find artwork created by children in the schools, but how often do students have the chance to create music? As Emily Bright found out, a program at the SOAR Charter School in Land O’Lakes allows students to do just that.The SOAR charter school is one of four schools in the country to take part in Very Young Composers, a week-long program that offers middle school students the chance to compose their own music. Students pair with local professional musicians. Northland Pines Band Director Forrest Mann says no formal music training is required.
