American Made Tour starring Lee Brice, Justin Moore, & special guest William Michael Morgan

Saturday, February 25, 2017
Milwaukee Theatre
February 25, 2017 at 7:00 PM (Sat)
Lee Brice and Justin Moore, two of country music’s most dynamic performers, will ring in 2017 with their co-headlined “American Made” tour, with William Michael Morgan rounding out the Milwaukee Theatre show on Saturday, February 25. Moore released his fourth album Kinda Don’t Care — his third #1 debut on the Country charts — in August. The lead single from the album, the Top-5 and-rising “You Look Like I Need a Drink,” lines up right alongside his chart-topping Platinum and Gold-certified hits “Small Town USA,” “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away,” “Point at You” and “Lettin’ The Night Roll.” This also follows two Gold-certified albums, Justin Moore and Outlaws Like Me. He debuted music from his new album last month with a live performance during the Fox & Friends All-American Summer Concert Series. Lee Brice is a multiple ACM and CMA award winner with a GRAMMY nomination, six RIAA platinum singles – and more than 10 Million singles sold —under his belt. The “melodically eloquent” (New York Times) power vocalist, songwriter and producer has celebrated five #1s including “I Drive Your Truck” and “Drinking Class,” and was most recently honored by the RIAA during a sold-out show at Madison Square Garden for the platinum certification of his #1 radio single, “I Don’t Dance.” He quickly followed that career milestone with performances on NBC’s The Voice, Today, and ABC’s The Bachelor Live. Breakout country star William Michael Morgan, whom NPR Music praised for his “unreserved sentimentality and easeful, fine-tuned singing approach,” released his debut album, Vinyl, September 30th on Warner Bros./Warner Music Nashville. A “Must-Hear Country Album” according to Rolling Stone, the 11-track work produced by hit-maker Scott Hendricks and Jimmy Ritchey features Morgan’s Top 5 and climbing debut radio hit “I Met A Girl.” Time: 7:00 p.m. Tickets: $35.75, $49.75, $59.75 VIP Packages! Platinum American Made Tour Meet & Greet Experience: $179.00 Includes 1 premium seat within rows 1- 5 or GA Pit ticket, 1 meet & greet opportunity with Lee Brice, 1 meet & greet opportunity with Justin Moore, VIP laminate and interactive souvenir (which includes albums from both Lee Brice & Justin Moore as well as exclusive pictures and videos), and a special edition tour poster. Gold American Made Tour VIP Package: $119.00 Includes 1 premium seat within rows 6-10 or GA Pit ticket, VIP laminate and interactive souvenir (which includes albums from both Lee Brice and Justin Moore as well as exclusive pictures and videos), and a special edition tour poster.

Running Time: 90 minutes

FEBRUARY 23, 2016 TO
MARCH 19, 2017

Studio Theatre
Directed by C. Michael Wright

Featuring Mitch Bultman, Mary MacDonald Kerr and James Ridge

It's 1999; uncertainty and instability are in the air. Four years earlier, Bryan had abandoned his labor of love, a newspaper for truckers. Now he's returned to small-town Idaho - with no word of where he's been - and things have changed. His former lover is filled with rage, his new coworker is filled with incessant adoration, and his paper is filled with personal ads. From Samuel D. Hunter, award winning-author and recent recipient of the MacArthur Foundation "Genius" Grant, comes this compassionate, gently-hued drama about lonely lives desperately searching for a renewed faith in humanity. [Contains mature language]

A NEW PLAY FOR OUR TIMES

An ace fighter pilot finds herself grounded when an unexpected pregnancy puts her career on hold. When she returns to the pilot’s seat, she finds that she’s now part of the “chair force,” flying drones and dropping bombs on enemy combatants in Afghanistan from the comfort of an air conditioned trailer in Las Vegas. In this gripping, ripped-from-the-headlines new play, we find that hunting terrorists by day and being a mother by night may be this top gun’s toughest assignment yet.

The David Barnett Gallery presents our “50th Anniversary Exhibition”. The opening reception will be held on Gallery Night & Day, Friday, January 20, 2017 from 5:00pm to 9:00pm and Saturday, January 21, 2017 from 11:00am to 5:00pm. The gallery is located at 1024 E. State St. at Prospect Ave. in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The David Barnett Gallery has supported and encouraged local artists since the founding of the gallery in 1966.  The mission of the gallery was to show graduate student’s work from local colleges due to the minimal opportunities to show artwork in Milwaukee at the time.  In 1968 the gallery began showing world renowned established masters such as Picasso, Toulouse-Lautrec, Chagall, Miro, Dali, Kandinsky and Pissarro.  The profits from these masters work enabled the gallery to fund the promotion and exhibition of unknown and emerging artists throughout Wisconsin. David Barnett on the creative process behind art: “Anything done with a high level of innovation can be perceived as an art, and the creative process behind all of these art forms is the same.  An artist painting, a musician playing, a ballerina dancing, a quarterback throwing, a chef cooking, a lawyer negotiating, a scientist discovering – it’s all the same.  The creative process is what drives me; it’s the artists that drive me crazy.  I know first-hand because I’m an artist myself.” This exhibition will feature artists exhibited since the inception of the gallery in 1966.  Artists include Picasso, Chagall, Matisse, Miro, Avery, Van Dongen, Renoir, Rembrandt, Pissarro, Weisbuch, Masson, Dali, John Steuart Curry, Summers, Gutierrez, Rosenquist, Lichtenstein, Warhol, Kandinsky, Marini, Degas, Giacometti, Karen Hoepting, Katherine Hartley, Leonard Baskin, Currier & Ives, Homer and Altman. Wisconsin artists featured include Joseph Rozman, Reginald K. Gee, Alayna Rose, Karin Krohne Kaufman, Dan Muller, David Barnett, Joan Dvorsky, Tom Ferderbar, Francesco Spicuzza, Sylvia Spicuzza and Alicia Czechowski. Old Masters, African, Latin American, Indonesian, New Guinea and Haitian art will also be represented. Through April 15, 2017. The David Barnett Gallery provides professional art consultation, appraisals, restoration and conservation, framing, lighting, custom giclee printing, delivery and installation services.  The gallery’s Van Go mobile art service brings artwork to residences and offices for “on location” selection.  Viewing hours at the David Barnett Gallery are 11:00am to 5:30pm Tuesday through Friday, 11:00am to 5:00pm Saturday, or by appointment.  For further information, please call (414) 271-5058.

David Plowden states that “the architecture of steelmaking is like no other.  Nowhere can you find this massiveness, drama, spectacle, and danger but in a steel mill.”  Between 1962 and 1985, Plowden sought to capture the majesty of the steel industry while at the same time documenting the demise of the industry as we knew it.

This exhibition allows for a re-examination of Plowden’s steel portfolio, including many photos printed specifically for this purpose.  Featuring more than 100 of his finest photographs, Steel places the viewer at the point where shovel meets dirt in the mining process and ends in the same soil surrounding these long-abandoned mills.
