5th Annual Lost Arts Festival
The Grohmann Museum hosts its 5th annual festival celebrating the activities and ways of work captured in the paintings and bronzes in the Museum’s permanent collection. A blacksmith, shoecarver, lacemaker, glass founder, spinners and master painters all share their expertise and demonstrate their techniques as the Museum becomes a laboratory for the creation of Lost Arts. The Museum’s docents will also be on-hand to provide hands-on demonstrations and further insight into the Museum’s collection. See artisans demonstrate their craft to further interpret the activities featured in many of the works in the Grohmann Museum Collection. Among them are: Kent Knapp: Milwaukee Blacksmith, Bob “Sieg” Siegel and Luke Traver: Wooden Shoe Carvers—Crafts Museum, Mary L. Spencer: Milwaukee Glass Artist, Helena Ehlke and the Grohmann Museum Master Painters: Painting, Cheryl Myers and the MSOE Yarn Engineers: Spinning, Knitting, Crocheting, music by Frogwater and more!
