Certain pursuits are more conducive than others to the development of prodigies. The more that wisdom and judgment are required, the less likely that mastery precedes the age of consent. So - pace Doogie Howser - we don't find M.D.s without the ability to also rent a car. The history of art, however, is littered with precocity. Mozart's first works, written at the age of four, presage the style o...

Each week the three events discussed in the Art Preview column in the Shepherd's print edition are winnowed from a more comprehensive list of that week's happenings. This list occasionally consists of upwards of ten events. The decision concerning which events make the cut is more of an art than a science. For example, name-brand institutions are often preempted by out-of-the-way, mom and pop g...

"Death and taxes," is the classic, glib attempt to enumerate life's certainties. A more sober and somber response differs only in omitting the latter conjunct. For some the inevitability of death is a source of crippling despair. Woody Allen, for example, has made a career of filtering this despair through his sense of humor. But this maneuver is nothing new; bluesmen have long sung of "laughing j...

Quiet you gaudy man!Slowly slides the old house from the hill. The old blue skyis stuck hopelessly between branches and leaves.Don't call me there!A striking number of nations have declared a national animal, a national bird, a national flower (a.k.a. "floral emblem"), a national fruit, a national dance, a national tree, a national sport, a national color, even a national personification (e.g. "Un...

"For years I said if I could only find a comfortable chair I would rival Mozart," wrote twentieth century composer Morton Feldman. While most would not insist on such grandiose results, it is easy to commiserate with Feldman: the success of a creative endeavor is tied up with the space of creation. It seems intuitively true that the 'great American novel' could not be written in the stultifying sq...

The Milwaukee Art Museum is the city's visual signature. The Santiago Calatrava-designed Quadracci Pavilion, Reiman Bridge, and whale tail of a brise soleil constitute the corner office of Milwaukee's central business district. The city's Wikipedia page - the top search result when one googles "Milwaukee" - features MAM in the uppermost photograph depicting the city. I rest my case. Indeed...
