Attendees may purchase much of the art on display, which includes paintings, fiber art, metalwork and jewelry. Opening day will include performances by the Milwaukee Youth Symphony Orchestra, classical-indie band I'm Not a Pilot and flamenco guitarist Evan Christian, among others. There will also be a wine garden, sculpture garden and silent auction. (Through Sunday, June 17.)
