Get Behind The Arts
Get a sneak peek at what’s in store this year at Get Behind The Arts. This is your chance to go behind the scenes and see how local artists create their work. It’s a self-guided tour, so you can make it your own experience. Racine studios are open on Saturday, April 27th. Kenosha studios are open on Sunday, April 28th. Organizers talk about what’s new on the tour, the impact of the arts on our community, and how Racine’s art scene has changed over the years.
In-Studio Jazz Performance
Get Behind The Arts kicks off on Friday, April 26th with the Preview Party. One of the musicians playing that night joins us in the studio to perform an original piece. Meet Curtis Crump Junior, learn about his Racine roots, and hear his jazzy music as he plays the saxophone.
Artist Explains Work
Contemporary artist Amy Misurelli Sorensen is opening her home studio for Get Behind The Arts. This is her first year being involved. She brings some of her intriguing artwork to the studio and reveals the message behind it.
Young Professionals Week
YP Week is dedicated to discovery, adventure, and meaningful conversations that matter to young professionals. Two of the women involved run through the events planned. You know it’s Racine when the first one is The Kringle Connection! We also talk about why The Foxconn Effect sold out and why a happy hour means more than drinks. Millennials should have a seat at the table and this is a great way to get involved.
