Fresh air, art, and stories is a great way to spend your Saturday morning.
Ex Fabula and Sculpture Milwaukee are partnering for Sculptures & Stories TOMORROW, July 21st at 10:30a. Sculptures and Stories will explore some of the 21 exhibits from global artists.
“Art is incredible in that no two people experience it the same way. It evokes a personal response. Combining that experience with the Ex Fabula storytelling will create a particularly personal and unique experience for the participants,” Maggie Kuhn Jacobus, owner MKJ Communications and Sculpture Milwaukee committee co-chair.
Our tour will feature stories from Elaine Maly and Shawn Mitchell, plus you’ll be able to submit your own UltraShort via social media.
