Our current Artist In Residence, Shelby Keefe, is about to embark on another special project staring March 1st.
Shelby will create a special 12” x 12″ painting for UPAF and each of its member groups.
These 16 paintings will happen over the course of the 16 days. This collaboration represents a unique opportunity for the performing arts to shine in a visual arts platform and to highlight the diversity our arts groups have to offer our region.
The complete schedule of paintings are as follows:
March 1: Milwaukee Youth Symphony Orchestra
March 2: Bel Canto Chorus
March 3: Milwaukee Repertory Theater
March 4: First Stage
March 5: Milwaukee Chamber Theatre
March 6: Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra
March 7: Milwaukee Public Theatre
March 8: Renaissance Theaterworks
March 9: Milwaukee Children’s Choir
March 10: Skylight Music Theatre
March 11: Present Music
March 12: Danceworks, Inc.
March 13: Next Act Theatre
March 14: Milwaukee Ballet
March 15: Florentine Opera
March 16: United Performing Arts Fund
As always, you’re invited to watch Shelby work in her studio at The Pfister throughout the process.
All of the paintings will be on view at UPAF’s campaign kick-off on Wednesday, April 4, at the Harley-Davidson Museum and the 16 paintings will be auctioned in June at a UPAF fundraising event.
