“The Aura of Art,” with ART Milwaukee
Artists from companies including Milwaukee Ballet, the Rep, Youngblood, and Danceworks joined visual artists at the latest ART Jamboree.
Artists and art of various media were plenty. Dancers from Milwaukee Ballet and Danceworks each performed ravishing contemporary pieces. Youngblood Theater Company put on interactive theater by the hotel bar, prompting random crowd members into becoming a part of the live performance. Milwaukee Repertory Theater displayed the art of costume, set, and lighting design.
Pfister Hotel’s Artist In Residence Timothy Westbrook showcased his elegant and fanciful ballroom gowns made from cassette tape-woven fabric. Fashion stylist Alexis Rose Criscimagna collaborated with Westbrook on the styling of the models and the display.
Artwork of various media were spread throughout the three levels of the hotel. A comprehensive list of artists who displayed at the ART Jamboree can be found at ART Milwaukee’s website.
