alf a century of Lakefront

Festival of Arts! We are very proud to welcome you to the 50th anniversary of the best juried art festival in the country! Come and experience the art and join us in the celebration. Once again, we host more than 170 artists who bring their exemplary work to exhibit and sell under the big tent at our unique lakefront setting. Our featured artist this year, Beau Tudzarov, has created a uniquely Lakefront piece that we know you will love. Come for the art, but do not miss the special events we have planned for you. New this year, we’ve extended our hours on Friday to introduce Lakefront Late Night, celebrating the great bands of Milwaukee along with expanded food and beverage offerings. All of this is in addition to the Milwaukee Magazine Wine Garden, our exceptional interactive children’s art and activity area, and access to Posters of Paris: Toulouse-Lautrec and His Contemporaries, the feature exhibition in the Museum. We would like to offer special recognition to our presenting sponsors,

Quad/Graphics and Milwaukee Magazine, as well as all of the other sponsors and supporters that make it possible for us to bring the festival to you every year. And since 1962, when Friends of Art produced the very first Lakefront Festival of Arts, it has been the dedication and hard work of hundreds of volunteers that have made the festival successful. To them, we offer our heartfelt thanks. Come celebrate 50 years with us! — Scott Wallace and Kathy Schnuck 2012 Lakefront Festival of Arts Co-Chairs

LAKEFRONT LATE NIGHT

Posters of Paris Sand Sculptures

he draw of Milwaukee’s gorgeous lakefront is nearly irresistible in summer, especially since this year’s Lakefront Festival of Arts is in full party mode with its 50th anniversary celebration. And as the sun goes down, there’s even more to experience. Much more.

Don’t miss the excitement as an international team of champion sand sculptors turn 75 tons of sand into images from turn-of-the century Paris, including Toulouse-Lautrec, the cancan and even a 16-foot replica of the Eiffel Tower!

T

The Place to Be Friday Night You’ll want to keep the party going by sticking around for live music Friday night, June 15. Enjoy an evening among friends with Milwaukee’s I’m Not A Pilot at 5 p.m., then catch Group of the Altos at 7 p.m. and Evan Christian at 9 p.m.

Grab the Best Seat in the Expanded Wine Garden The 2010 introduction of the Milwaukee Magazine Wine Garden proved a huge hit – and now it’s even better. Relish the incredible lake and festival views from the Museum’s Baumgartner Terrace while enjoying an expanded wine and cheese selection as well as other food and beverage options. Don’t miss this year’s event, where all weekend long you can peruse the art, hang out at the lakefront and savor music, beer, wine and food. Above all, there are memories to be made. Come celebrate with us!

PARKING Official festival parking is available for $5 at Veterans Park (follow the signs northbound on Lincoln Memorial Drive and turn right onto Lagoon Drive). A complimentary shuttle departs every 10 minutes to and from the Museum grounds. Parking is also available for a fee at the War Memorial Center North Parking Lot (enter from Lincoln Memorial Drive) and at O’Donnell Park on a first-come, firstserved basis. Disabled visitors and their companions may enter the festival through the west entrance on Lincoln Memorial Drive near the entrance to O’Donnell Park. Bike parking is always free on the festival grounds near the south entrance!

Volunteer program The festival couldn't happen without the support of our volunteers! For information on how you can get involved, visit mam. org/lfoa or call 414-224-3253.

GREENING EFFORTS This year’s festival has taken additional steps beyond its successful recycling program to embrace environmental responsibility. In fact, the festival has qualified for Travel Green Wisconsin certification. This program is being printed on recycled paper with specially engineered Enviro/Tech ink, which contains large amounts of renewable resources. The event reuses materials, such as signage, as much as possible. Vendors are encouraged to use less energy, and attendees are encouraged to take public transportation. Artists are asked to use fluorescent lighting instead of incandescent bulbs in artwork displays. And the free promotional items for artists will be provided in reusable cloth grocery bags.

INFORMATION

Questions? Information needed? Answers are just a red vest away. The red-vested LFOA Information Ambassadors will be roving the grounds to ensure you get the most out of the festival.

Volunteer for the Fun of It Volunteer program sponsored by Kaplan University

Yes, the Lakefront Festival of Arts is a special event, but many may not know it’s also a fundraiser for the Milwaukee Art Museum. Still fewer know that the Friends of Art is behind the weekend of fun, freely giving thousands of volunteer hours to raise money to purchase art and support exhibitions at the Museum. It’s rare to find a volunteer who helps at LFOA only once. “Many people – even some with generations of volunteer history

– take a week out of their summer every year to work on the festival,” says Kathy Schnuck, a co-chair of this year’s event. And this year, because it’s the festival’s 50th anniversary, the experience may be even more gratifying. Scott Wallace, co-chair, says, “It’s rewarding to see all the dedicated volunteers who return year after year. We hope people say, ‘I can’t wait for the 75th anniversary.’” — Laura Patten

FRIENDS OF ART

Posters of Paris: Toulouse-Lautrec and His Contemporaries (June 1-Sept. 9, 2012)

MILWAUKEE ART MUSEUM MEMBERS

Sponsored by PNC and Friends of Art Posters of Paris: Toulouse-Lautrec and His Contemporaries explores the earliest days of the affiche artistique (artistic poster) and its flowering, first under Jules Chéret – the “father of the modern poster” – and then with a new generation of artists, including Pierre Bonnard, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and Alphonse Mucha, artists who brought the poster to new heights in the 1890s. Their posters were so successful that they sparked widespread affichomanie, or poster mania, throughout Paris. Collectors stole posters from billboards, purchased them from print dealers and subscribed to portfolios such as Les Maîtres de l’Affiche, which offered the most popular posters of the day in reduced sizes.

Members at the Art Advocate level and higher are invited to join Friday’s LFOA Sneak Preview. Lakefront Festival of Arts Sneak Preview Friday, JUNE 15: 10 a.m.–noon

Friends of Art (FOA) is the Milwaukee Art Museum’s largest volunteer support group, organizing several major fundraising events and programs annually to benefit the Museum’s Art Acquisition and Exhibition Fund. Over $7 million has been generated through FOA events since it was founded in 1957.

LFOA EXHIBITION POLICY The Milwaukee Art Museum and Friends of Art (FOA) do not receive any part of the proceeds from the sale of artwork at the Lakefront Festival of Arts. All art sales are strictly between the patron and the exhibitor, and because the Museum/FOA are not part of the transaction, they have no responsibility for the sale. Although FOA cannot resolve problems related to sales transactions, they are interested in your feedback and would like to know if you are dissatisfied with any aspect of your purchase.

BY LAURA PATTEN

t was 1962. America was twisting and shouting with The Isley Brothers, TV viewers were captivated by a redhead named Lucy, Andy Warhol was painting soup cans and a Milwaukeean named Jack Lewis, now 84, was putting together the city’s first Lakefront Festival of Arts (LFOA). With no real experience raising money or organizing festivals, Lewis and his co-chair, Mary Ellen Philipp, joined with a hard-working handful of friends

and recruited more than 100 Wisconsin artists to display their works on temporary fencing that zigzagged across the Milwaukee Art Museum’s old grounds. The volunteers also hired musicians, including part of the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, as well as other performing artists and children’s entertainers, like the Pick-A-Pack Players. “The focus was on arts, plural,” emphasizes Lewis. “Movies, plays, music – all kinds of stuff. Something for everybody, all in one day.” Ideally, all in one sunny day.

“We had everyone steamed up to go on a Saturday. As we got closer, people started asking about a rain date,” recalls Lewis. “I said, ‘What rain date?’” Indeed, Saturday brought the rain. Lewis and Philipp agreed to postpone the event until Sunday and called every artist and performer to inform them. All said that Sunday worked out fine – except for one holdout: trumpeter Dick Ruedebusch and his Underprivileged Five band, a bigname act that had appeared on “The Ed Sullivan Show” that January. But Lewis wasn’t daunted. After some sweet-talking, the band agreed to the Sunday night switch. Another volunteer called local TV and radio stations. “On the top of the hour, every hour, the radio people announced the rain date. We got more publicity from that than we could imagine,” Lewis says. In the end, about 9,000 people streamed onto the grounds that day.

THE GOOD GETS BETTER Today, the festival spans three days and has moved to the neighboring green space just south of the Calatrava-designed addition. Rain no longer threatens the event because the artists assemble under spacious

clear-span tents. Patrons enjoy food and beverages, which for adults includes fine wines found in the welcoming Milwaukee Magazine Wine Garden, and entertainment for all tastes and ages. “In a way, the festival has come full circle because, over the past few years especially, we’ve brought back a focus on a wider variety of arts,” says Krista Renfrew, director of special events for the Milwaukee Art Museum. This year, for example, the McMenamin Irish Dance Academy will perform, Danceworks Performance Company will share an original contemporary piece, and the Milwaukee Youth Symphony Orchestra will feature Calypso, the group’s Trinidadianstyle steel band. Other musical entertainment takes festival-goers right through Friday and Saturday evenings, and an enhanced Children’s Area will keep young patrons engaged. (SEE PAGE 9 FOR THE COMPLETE SCHEDULE.)

“There’s such a strong dynamic to the festival. It easily can take a whole day to absorb the full experience,” says Julia DeCicco, president of the Friends of Art volunteer group that organizes the event. In addition to enjoying art tents and entertainment, visitors can stroll along the lake, explore the sculpture garden and even tour the world-class Museum.

AND THE BEST REMAINS THE BEST A constant over the past five decades? The outstanding artwork. Only about 10 percent of all artists who apply are accepted into this juried art festival. “People who come to the festival appreciate that everything they see and buy is high-quality,” says Renfrew. Many – if not most – art festivals have struggled to make it 50 years. But LFOA organizers have deliberately, and smartly, breathed new life into the festival each year while maintaining its high standards. For 2012, Lewis will be back to celebrate the event’s golden anniversary. “It really was a fun thing to plan and [have] so well-received by everyone,” he says.

THREE TIPS FOR BUYING ART Milwaukee Art Museum’s chief educator, Barbara Brown Lee, offers pointers for how to buy art. BY LAURA PATTEN

W

hile everyone has different tastes, we can probably all agree that an environment without art is pretty dull. But before you think buying a piece at the Lakefront Festival of Arts is only for those with deep pockets or insured collections, check out what Barbara Brown Lee has to say. Brown Lee is the Milwaukee Art Museum’s chief educator and, come January, a 50-year employee there. She says the main reason to buy art is simple: for pleasure.

Tip 1: Start slowly.

Milwaukee Magazine (MM): How do

people begin buying art?

Barbara Brown Lee (BBL): Start gradually. You don’t have to spend $10,000 on your first piece. Well, you can, but you don’t have to. Buy a collage, a photograph, a painting – something that talks to you, not what other people talk you into. If you have $50, I can

show you plenty of places to spend that money, and the artists would appreciate the sale.

Tip 2: Buy what you like.

MM: What kind of art should people buy? BBL: Whatever you like. Don’t worry

about what other people think. You’re buying it for you – not them. Art [elicits] an emotional and aesthetic response, and that’s always personal. You can’t make a mistake. And if your tastes change, give [the piece] as a wedding present!

Tip 3: Talk with the artists.

MM: Where can people learn more about

art?

BBL: We offer classes and gallery talks

at the Museum, but [you should] also talk to the artists at the festival. They’re wonderful people because they have a gift, and they love to talk about it. If you buy from them, you’ll have the piece of art and a story to tell.

POSTER ARTIST Taking Flight with Digital Art

F

rench artist

Marcel Duchamp said not all artists are chess players, but “all chess players are artists.” For Beau Tudzarov, a digital artist from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., the Beau Tudzarov latter is especially true. A chess player since he was age 5 (and respectfully beating his dad by 10), Tudzarov was selected as the 2012 Lakefront Festival of Arts (LFOA) poster artist. “Chess is a running theme in my life,” he offers. “Creating a picture is like visualizing a chess game. You can’t touch the pieces or move them. You have to do that in your head.” When Tudzarov created this year’s poster, he drew on his prior experience as an exhibitor at LFOA. “I remember getting to the show early so I wouldn’t miss the opening of the Museum’s wings. It’s spectacular,” he says. Tudzarov used that memory to inform his surreal landscape of Milwaukee’s lakefront. “I thought about movement and how the wings look like they’re about to take flight. How the pieces of the wing buried in the sand then open. This is about letting your mind be free. You’re not earthbound. You can let your mind be free through art,” he says. Digital art, says Tudzarov, captures the concept of freedom especially well. He uses a 3-D program to build the wireframe models of his concept, manipulates an image-editing application to enhance the elements, puts everything together, produces a final rendering, processes a high-resolution image for about two days then prints the final piece. It takes about a month from concept to completion. Because there’s so much detail in Tudzarov’s work – notice the reflection on the partially buried pawn, for example – it’s worth multiple viewings to absorb all the elements. And when you ponder the poster, be sure to find Tudzarov at this year’s festival. “I really like the LFOA patrons. They’re very knowledgeable and less intimated than others about digital art,” he says. — Laura Patten Photo by Timothy Hursley
