Wisconsin’s Greenbelt Town Is Focus of Exhibit Talk

An exhibit talk and slide presentation by Milwaukee-based history writer Erin TerBeek will kick off a new year of free public programming in the Miller Art Museum’s 2019 Second Thursday Program Series. The event, scheduled for Feb. 14 at 10:30 am, will take place in the main gallery of the museum. It is free and open to the public.

TerBeek’s talk, “Greendale, a Green Belt Town: Examples of New Deal Projects in Wisconsin,” will complement the museum’s current exhibit, Jason Reblando: New Deal Utopias — an extensive photo series that documents and explores the Greenbelt Towns that were created during the Great Depression through New Deal legislation.

TerBeek is a history writer, a prospect researcher at the Greater Milwaukee Foundation and a writer for the Shepherd Express and Milwaukee Record. She completed an internship at Berkeley for the “Living New Deal” project, researching and documenting New Deal sites in Wisconsin and Chicago.

Jason Reblando: New Deal Utopias will be on display through Feb. 25. The museum is located in the Door County Library at 107 S. Fourth Ave. in downtown Sturgeon Bay.
