While visiting the Racine Art Musuem, I discovered that its location is where the American Bank & Trust used to stand. The same American Bank & Trust that John Dillinger & his gang robbed on Nov 20, 1933. (The robbery was recently recreated on film in “Public Enemies”.)  Parts of the bank still exist within the museum structure, but for a better idea of what it looked like back then, you can look at the b/w pic - the bank was on the corner, across the same side of the street from the Venetian.

Cast your vote at Racine Art Museum

(We) often see people who have written down several different names. We see people come in, and go from piece to piece. It’s been interesting…”

Visit the Racine Art Museum and cast your vote. There are already favorites rising to the top, but there is plenty of room to make an impact. Continue reading “Cast your vote at Racine Art Museum” on OnMilwaukee.

Η καλλιτέχνις Elsa Mora φτιάχνει πρωτότυπες ανάγλυφες δημιουργίες από χαρτί. Για τα έργα της, που συχνά είναι τρισδιάστατα, χρησιμοποιεί αποκλειστικά οικολογικό χαρτί, σε ένα πλήθος χρωμάτων, και κόλλα. Πολλά από αυτά εικονογραφούν βιβλία, άλλα έχουν δημιουργηθεί κατά παραγγελία πελατών. Η δουλειά της εκτίθεται αυτό τον καιρό στο Racine Art Museum του Ουισκόνσιν.

Τα χάρτινα γλυπτά της…
