A Conversation to Spark Milwaukee’s Imagination

Join Historic Milwaukee Inc. and the Pabst Theater Foundation for an experimental civic discussion on Monday, March 11, ‘Envisioning the Seen’ which is a cross between a fireside chat, an 18th century salon and a modern act of civic largesse.

Eavesdrop on 12 of Milwaukee’s most interesting thinkers as they imagine what Milwaukee could be without the limitations we impose on ourselves today. These deeply invested, compelling, and very different Milwaukeeans will share their visions of an ideal city in a bold conversation. Join them in thinking about how Milwaukee could look, feel, and function when we shed those personal and collective bad habits that entrench the problems that plague us all. Will we live to see a Milwaukee where “Milwaukee Malaise” is nothing but alliteration? It’s up to…who?

‘Envisioning the Seen’’ begins at 6pm. Doors open at 5pm.

A professional artist for more than 40 years, Evelyn Patricia Terry graduated from North Division High School, the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee, and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
