A Creative Place: The History of Wisconsin Art

November 27, 2022 | 10:00 am - 11:00 am


Tom Lidtke, Co-Author, Retired MOWA Executive Director.

This book, released in 2021 by the Cedarburg Art Museum, was an ambitious task covering 13,000 years of human creativity in Wisconsin. It took nearly a dozen people five and a half years to complete. The seed for this herculean effort began more than three decades ago when Lidtke taught a Wisconsin art history graduate summer course at the Museum of Wisconsin Art (MOWA). Lidtke was Executive Director for three decades before retiring in 2013. His editorial goal was to appeal to a wide spectrum of readers by placing art in a multigenerational, multicultural and sociopolitical context.  Host: Mark Mueller

In-Person: In Max Otto Hall.

First Unitarian Society of Milwaukee

For over 50 years, the Sunday Forum lecture series has showcased provocative, sometimes controversial, speakers discussing topical issues of the day: politics, the environment, health issues, the arts, education, and more. The Sunday Forum is held at 10:00 a.m. September through May. Speakers give a 45-minute presentation, followed by questions and brief comments from the audience. The content of Forum lectures does not necessarily express the viewpoint of First Unitarian Society of Milwaukee, but are meant to offer thoughtful topics which our members often pursue further on their own.
