Sculptures and Stories Tour #1 – Are you ready?

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.

Tickets are available here

Havenwoods neighbors share the promise and heartache of a distinct community

Havenwoods neighbors partnered with Ex Fabula to tell their stories of righting wrongs and growing businesses, of old shopping trips and newfound love, as part of an event that highlighted a community that stands out beyond Milwaukee.

“People in this part of Milwaukee have figured out how to create communities and businesses and workplaces and parks that reach across boundaries of race, ethnicity and class in ways other parts of the city and nation have not figured out,” said Dr. Aims McGuinness, a historian from University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, during the event.
