FYI The Milwaukee Chilhuly exhibit closed earlier this month. It was beautiful and I'm sorry you missed it. Anyone who comes to Milwaukee should visit our art museum. Local people (and visitors) have flocked to go to the museum and it is refreshing to see the wonderful support art is getting in the community. It's worth the trip. It has the new Callatrava addition that looks like wings and opens and closes each day. It is truly a wonderful sight to see. Besides this addition, there are constant changes in exhibits. Before the Chilhuly there was a Georgia O'Keefe exhibit. Judy

Speaking of Chihuly and Martha...
Here's a glimpse of a Chihuly installation in Madison, WI;
"the Mendota Wall", installed in 1997 in the Kohl Center (new
multipurpose facility at UW Madison)... I just realized that he
is an alumnus of the UW-Madison. There is also a new exhibit
of Chihuly work that just opened in Milwaukee... hope I get to
see it before it goes! Mendota Wall has 1287 pieces of glass,
140ftx12ft...garden of glass anemones...
The latest issue of Martha Stewart Living has instructions
for cutting stars with 4, 5, 6, 8, and 10 pointed stars. The
folds before cutting are the five pointed stars recently
discussed on the list.
