The Miller Art Museum announces its next Second Thursday Program on June 14, 6:30 pm, in conjunction with the current exhibit Our Water Stories, which is presented under the year-long Celebrate Water initiative of the Door County Community Foundation.
The free artist talk features Milwaukee-based environmental artist Melanie Ariens.
Ariens is a multimedia artist with a passion for the Great Lakes and freshwater issues. Her work is her advocacy, communicating about and celebrating our shared water resources. As artist-in-residence for Milwaukee Water Commons, she plans and facilitates creative, water-inspired art experiences for local water leaders and community groups believing art has the power to inspire and engage the community in social and environmental issues.
“Our involvement in this initiative is to provide a platform for the celebration of our most treasured shared resource and to highlight its importance, not just to our ecological systems and sustained life, but also to art and culture,” said Elizabeth Meissner-Gigstead, Miller Art Museum executive director.
The exhibit remains on view through July 17. For more information call 920.746.0707 or visit facebook.com/millerartmuseum. For more information about the artist visit ariensmelanie.wixsite.com/mariens.
