FOUND & DISPLACED
Find yourself at our little graphic design studio; sway to the sounds of Amanda Huff (8pm), enjoy Belgian bier by Lowlands Brewing Co., go-carts, screen-printed posters and limited edition Bay View t-shirt designs.
Live jazz as part of Bay View Jazz Fest and an exhibition and an exciting Live Art performance by Bass Structures! A collaborative body of work between artists Emmanuel Fritz and Collin Schipper. They use sound to arrange paint into geometric and/or fractal-like patterns. The patterns are subject to several factors. The note/frequency that is pulsing through the system reacts uniquely to the types of materials used in the process. Come and see it for yourself. BVJF Lineup 5:30 – Cedarburg HS 7:00 – Bill Martin Trio 8:30 – 4th Street Elevator 10:00 – Fred Boswell Quartet
See “Myths from Exoplanets” By artist Luke Chappelle. Combining the scale and palette of his Blackbird Bar mural, the opulent jeweled facades of his recent landscape works, and the bizarre, intricate, and psychedelic occult primitivism of his drawings, these new paintings seek to distill the essence of Chappelle’s unique aesthetic.
Enjoy this family friendly event, grab a bite and picnic with the neighbors.

“The Me You Don’t See”
How does a teen interpret their outward and inward self? These unique self-portraits blend the line work of block prints with the language of the inner voice. Mindfulness activities engaged the artists in thoughtful writing processes that enhanced their ideas of how they describe themselves with honesty and awareness. Witness the voice of our youth at this fascinating event. Keep the conversation going over a treat with our partner of the night, Cream City Swirl.
This is a Bay View collaboration with Parkside School of the Arts and Cream City Swirl.

Unrevealed: Typewriter Drawings by Rachel Mulder
Rachel Mulder is a draftswoman living in Portland, Oregon. She grew up in Waubeka, Wisconsin, and received her BFA in Printmaking from MIAD in 2007. Coveting the obsessive nature and happy accidents of printmaking, Mulder makes drawings using a manual typewriter. Unrevealed is a series of such portraits in which the subject’s identity is withheld either by natural visual distortion or by the absence of certain features. It will be on view at Rush Mor Records June 5 – June 30, 2015.
