This may be the finest exhibit anywhere. It’s happening NOW in the Koss Gallery at the Milwaukee Art Museum. “Unmasked & Anonymous: Shimon & Lindemann Consider Portraiture,” was previewed by this writer for the Shepherd Express. Adding to the event, are works by various photographers, including Francis Ford and Stanley Ryan Jones of Milwaukee-based fame. If you know about photography, you’ll know about Francis and Stanley. Multiple works from Julie & Johnie are seamlessly hung with many from the museum’s permanent collection, no small thanks to Lisa Hostetler, MAM’s curator of prints, who, over the past two years, gave the show her considerable and undivided attention. The leaves of brown will soon tumble down. What a way to bid adieu to summer and hello to Manitowoc’s finest, a pair of pros. Lucky are those students who fall under J & J’s professorial spell at Lawrence University up Appleton way.

Museum members can see it free until it this superb show ends on November 30. Who says Wisconsin-based artists get the short end of the museum’s stick?

Love xxxooo,

Plus it will likely be a party to end all parties.
