A VERY MEMORABLE BIRTHDAY PARTY

Saturday night a friend threw himself a 55th birthday party with 900 of his friends, live music by the 70’s Brit band Supertramp, followed by Grammy-nominated Daya and finally by Sammy Hagar!  Cirque de Soleil type acrobats and jugglers. Amazing food stations, open bars and generous party goodie bags for all!  His 50th was fantastic – can’t wait for his 60th!

THE WISCONSIN ARTS BOARD DOES HISTORIC CEDARBURG, WISCONSIN

As vice chair of the Wisconsin Arts Board I had the pleasure of arranging our annual field trip to a part of the state we have never visited.  The arts community in Cedarburg, a city of 12,000 just 30 minutes north of Milwaukee is lively and thriving.

The WAB has 15 board members from every corner of the state and we try and get to know the arts scene in each region we visit.  This was an amazing tour of two days, staying at the charming Washington House Inn, an evening reception with 75 local arts leaders and a full day of touring 10 different arts locations from museums to cultural centers to performing arts centers to historic exhibits and galleries.  Everything was walkable in this 7 block Historic District.

An absolutely wonderful and eye-opening visit with people who really get that the creative economy often begins with a lively arts scene.

GLITTERING BLACK TIE FUNDRAISER

What fun it was to be in attendance at one of the most over-the-top fundraising balls last Saturday night in Ann Arbor, Michigan.  More than 1000 attended this 40th anniversary event to support St. Joseph Mercy Hospital. They raised millions.  I was in awe of what they accomplish each year.
