Harley-Davidson 110th Anniversary

Tank Wall, Harley-Davidson Museum

This Labor Day weekend, Milwaukee will host a monumental celebration for Harley-Davidson’s 110th Anniversary, featuring 60 bands, street parties featuring bikes from all over the world, and a host activities on the Harley-Davidson Museum grounds. If you’ve never visited the Harley-Davidson Museum, it is striking.  Truly impeccably designed. Each artfully displayed exhibit explores the history of the Harley, and culture surrounding the iconic company. Whether you have little to no interest in motorcycles, or are a life-long enthusiast, do not miss out on this museum.

If you plan to visit the Harley-Davidson Museum this Labor Day weekend, timed ticketing reservations are highly recommended. As I’ve already toured the museum, I’ll be taking in the celebration at a distance and doing a little people watching (with a cocktail in hand) at The Yard, the fabulous patio at Milwaukee’s boutique hotel, The Iron Horse (appropriately geared toward motorcycle enthusiasts). Enjoy your Labor Day weekend!

Lakefront Festival of Art & Sarah Giannobile

This past weekend, the husband and I braved the humid weather to visit the annual Lakefront Festival of Art at the Milwaukee Art Museum. This year, 180 artists from around the world displayed their works, from paintings and ceramic wares, to fiber and jewelry, amongst them a couple of familiar favorites, Cali Hobgood and Nick Wroblewski, as well as at least one new fave, Sarah Giannobile.

Giannobile’s gem-like forms are woven into delicate webs, each work a dream-like expression of the artist’s subconscious, explorations of childhood memories of farm-life in Missouri.
