Beauty in the Details
Art talk and photos by Tony Busalacchi
Visit the Charles Allis Decorative Art Museum for an informative and inspirational evening with longtime Milwaukee artist, art collector and educator, Tony Busalacchi.
For his art talk, “Right Under Your Nose,” he presents and discusses photographs taken during walks with his wife, Pat, in the Allis’ historic lakeside neighborhood. The images celebrate architectural details and other visual points of interest, ranging from gargoyles and mosaics to temporary art.
The talk will be held Wednesday, May 15, from 7-8:30 p.m. at the Allis, 1801 N. Prospect Ave. Admission is $8 for museum members or $12 for non-members. Call Ann at 414-278-8295 (ext. 5) or email RSVP@cavtmuseums.org to make a reservation.
