Time: 10:00 am



MEQUON, WI (SEPTEMBER 19-21, 2014) – Campus Colors invites the public to celebrate its Grand Opening the weekend of September 19th-21st and help raise money for area schools. When a customer (student, faculty, or family members) makes a purchase and designates an area school, Campus Colors will donate 10% back to the school’s PTO. Students and community members are encouraged to come out to the Mequon Pavilions (10906 N. Port Washington Road) and show their school spirit throughout the weekend.

“We are dedicated to supporting our local community and partnering on fundraising initiatives throughout the year,” says Jon Rubenstein, co-owner of Campus Colors. “Mequon and its neighboring towns have a strong emphasis on education, so we thought we would kick-start our philanthropic dedication to the many surrounding schools at our grand opening.”

Recognized as Chicagoland’s top collegiate and sportswear retailer, the Mequon Campus Colors marks the Company’s first location outside of Illinois. In celebration of its Grand Opening, the first 100 guests will receive a FREE Campus Colors t-shirt. In addition, anyone making a purchase during the Grand Opening weekend will have the opportunity to reach in to the surprise bucket to receive discounts and free merchandise – everyone comes out a winner!

Outfitting students, alumnae and sport fans from head to toe, and classroom to dorm room for the past 23 years, the family-owned business is thrilled to add this fifth location to its portfolio. “We have identified Mequon as a close-knit suburban community very similar to our Illinois locations, and we are looking forward to laying our Wisconsin roots here,” says Rubenstein, second generation to the Campus Colors family.

Whether gearing up to send a child off to college, or looking for the perfect graduation, birthday, or baby sports fan gift, Campus Colors offers the widest selection of top-quality licensed collegiate apparel in the Midwest (and online) from over 200 universities and colleges, as well as professional sports apparel, including the Milwaukee Brewers, Bucks and Green Bay Packers.

Campus Colors was created on the premise of bringing authentic college bookstore merchandise off the college campus, where it otherwise wasn’t available. The company is focused on customer service, and regularly donates to non-profit organizations and schools within the community.

The new Mequon store is open from 10am-6pm Monday through Friday, 10am-5pm Saturday, and 11-4pm Sunday. For more information, call the store at 262-236-9034. All Campus Colors merchandise is also available for online shopping at www.CampusColors.com and items can be shipped nationwide for just $3.99, or orders over $75 ship for free.

August 8 – November 2, 2014

In this site-specific installation, Milwaukee artist Tyanna Buie employs a combination of screen printing, collage and ink-on-paper together with three-dimensional objects to convey her narrative of loss, impermanence, and unconventional family dynamics. Buie corrals this introspection and reflection into the gallery making the experience simultaneously personal and universal. Consciously or subconsciously, we all carry our past with us, and great art can tap into that in a constructive way. Tyanna Buie takes her past and makes something positive. Hopefully it will do the same for others.

Tyanna Buie: Printmaker
August 8 – November 2, 2014

In this site-specific installation, Milwaukee artist Tyanna Buie employs a combination of screen printing, collage and ink-on-paper together with three-dimensional objects to convey her narrative of loss, impermanence, and unconventional family dynamics. Buie corrals this introspection and reflection into the gallery making the experience simultaneously personal and universal. Consciously or subconsciously, we all carry our past with us, and great art can tap into that in a constructive way. Tyanna Buie takes her past and makes something positive. Hopefully it will do the same for others.

Yoga  in the Garden with Heather Eiden
Sundays, 2-3:30 pm September 7-September 28, 2014

About Yoga in the Garden

Find a quiet retreat for the practice of yoga, sheltered from the wind, level and clean, free from rubbish, smoldering fires, and ugliness, where the sound of water and the beauty of the place help thought and contemplation.
- The Upanishads

Heather Eiden, ceramic artist, art educator and yoga instructor, offers a weekly beginning/intermediate Hatha Yoga class outdoors at Lynden. Yoga, which means union, refers to the interconnection of mind, body and spirit. Yoga is an ongoing process of discovery, an evolving art, and a pathway to holistic health. Eiden focuses on mindfulness, centering and alignment as she leads students through asanas (physical postures), pranayama (control of the breath), and relaxation.

The class takes place outdoors (it will move indoors in inclement weather), so wear appropriate clothing and footwear (yoga socks) for outdoor practice and bring a mat. Some yoga experience required.

Heather Eiden has been teaching Hatha Yoga since 2004. She is a registered teacher with the Yoga Alliance, and has studied at several places, including the Himalayan Yoga and Meditation Society in Rishikesh, India. She has offered a variety of yoga classes, including Beginning Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Flow, Prenatal Yoga and Yoga for Alignment, at the Wisconsin Athletic Club and the Solcare Wellness Center. She has been teaching yoga at Lynden since 2011.

In the warmer seasons, we offer a monthly docent-led "patio tour" for those with limited mobility. Mrs. Bradley, who collected the more than 50 monumental sculptures at Lynden between 1962 and 1978, liked to be able to see a great deal of the sculpture from her seat in the corner of the porch, so the patio offers an excellent view of much of our collection. The 45-60 minute tour, conducted from the patio of the house, introduces visitors to the history of the Lynden Sculpture Garden, surveys the sculptures visible from the patio, and takes a closer look at those nearby.

CAMPUS COLORS CELEBRATES ITS MEQUON GRAND OPENING AND HELPS SUPPORT AREA SCHOOLS

Date: Sun-Sep-21-2014

Location: Campus Colors

Time: 11:00 am



MEQUON, WI (SEPTEMBER 19-21, 2014) – Campus Colors invites the public to celebrate its Grand Opening the weekend of September 19th-21st and help raise money for area schools. When a customer (student, faculty, or family members) makes a purchase and designates an area school, Campus Colors will donate 10% back to the school’s PTO. Students and community members are encouraged to come out to the Mequon Pavilions (10906 N. Port Washington Road) and show their school spirit throughout the weekend.

“We are dedicated to supporting our local community and partnering on fundraising initiatives throughout the year,” says Jon Rubenstein, co-owner of Campus Colors. “Mequon and its neighboring towns have a strong emphasis on education, so we thought we would kick-start our philanthropic dedication to the many surrounding schools at our grand opening.”

Recognized as Chicagoland’s top collegiate and sportswear retailer, the Mequon Campus Colors marks the Company’s first location outside of Illinois. In celebration of its Grand Opening, the first 100 guests will receive a FREE Campus Colors t-shirt. In addition, anyone making a purchase during the Grand Opening weekend will have the opportunity to reach in to the surprise bucket to receive discounts and free merchandise – everyone comes out a winner!

Outfitting students, alumnae and sport fans from head to toe, and classroom to dorm room for the past 23 years, the family-owned business is thrilled to add this fifth location to its portfolio. “We have identified Mequon as a close-knit suburban community very similar to our Illinois locations, and we are looking forward to laying our Wisconsin roots here,” says Rubenstein, second generation to the Campus Colors family.

Whether gearing up to send a child off to college, or looking for the perfect graduation, birthday, or baby sports fan gift, Campus Colors offers the widest selection of top-quality licensed collegiate apparel in the Midwest (and online) from over 200 universities and colleges, as well as professional sports apparel, including the Milwaukee Brewers, Bucks and Green Bay Packers.

Campus Colors was created on the premise of bringing authentic college bookstore merchandise off the college campus, where it otherwise wasn’t available. The company is focused on customer service, and regularly donates to non-profit organizations and schools within the community.

The new Mequon store is open from 10am-6pm Monday through Friday, 10am-5pm Saturday, and 11-4pm Sunday. For more information, call the store at 262-236-9034. All Campus Colors merchandise is also available for online shopping at www.CampusColors.com and items can be shipped nationwide for just $3.99, or orders over $75 ship for free.

S/V Denis Sullivan Bucket List Sail

Date: Mon-Sep-22-2014

Location: Discovery World

Time: 8:00 am



Join the crew of the S/V Denis Sullivan for the experience of a lifetime! Experience the beauty of the Great Lakes like never before. Relive the golden days of the Age of Sail as you travel by tall ship from Milwaukee on this exciting and hands-on multi-day adventure. Space is limited, so book your sail today!

As Wisconsin's flagship, the S/V Denis Sullivan connects learners of all ages to the Great Lakes and our world of water through experiential learning, adventure and the environment. The S/V Denis Sullivan is the world's only re-creation of a 19th century three-masted Great Lakes schooner, providing visitors of all ages with a glimpse into the rich maritime history on the Great Lakes, and a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

The Bucket List Sail begins in Milwaukee, where the S/V Denis Sullivan and her crew will be traveling to Traverse City, Michigan, for Schooner Fest 2014 presented by the Maritime Heritage Alliance.

The Bucket List Sail has two legs of travel that you can choose to partake in. In the first leg, you travel from Milwaukee to Traverse City. In the second leg, you travel from Traverse City to Milwaukee. Passengers can do one or both legs of the journey.

Milwaukee to Traverse City : September 16 (9am) - September 18/19 (weather dependent)
Traverse City to Milwaukee : September 22 (8am) - September 24 (4pm; weather dependent)

Schooner Fest itself takes place between September 19-21. Should you choose to join us for both legs of the journey, you are free to stay and sleep aboard the S/V Denis Sullivan. However, meals would not be included during these dates and you must exit the ship during public sails and tours while in Traverse City.

The cost for the Bucket List Sail is $300 per leg of travel. Passengers must be 18 years of age or older (or 12 years and up if accompanied by an adult). Food and accomodations are included during each leg of travel. We have 16 spots available for passengers, so reserve your bunk today! Deadline to register is Wednesday, September 10th!

The S/V Denis Sullivan is an active sail training vessel; she meets and exceeds all requirements set forth by the U.S. Coast Guard as a small passenger vessel and as a Sailing School Vessel (SSV). Travelers aboard the ship become part of the crew and are encouraged to take full advantage of every opportunity the vessel offers. Participants can climb the rigging to help set the topsails, or venture out on the bowspirit (head rig). There is no limit to the level of a participation that can occur, all under the watchful eye of our professional crew.

Should you have any questions regarding this sail, please call Captain Tiffany directly at 414-274-4237 or email her at tkrihwan@discoveryworld.org.

To reserve your space, please call the Reservations Department at 414-765-8625. At the time of your reservation we will need 25% of the fee for the sail to hold your place.

Date: Mon-Sep-22-2014

Location: Jewish Museum Milwaukee

Visit this new and profound exhibit about the impact of the Holocaust. In 1939 Hedwig and Paul Strnad of Prague sent a letter to Milwaukee cousin Alvin Strnad pleading for help to come to the United States.  They included 8 of Hedwig’s dress designs to show that they would be employable here.  Despite Alvin’s best attempts, Paul and Hedwig were not able to come to this country and they perished in the Holocaust. The Museum has had Hedwig’s dresses actually created to honor her legacy and to remember all of the talent lost in the Holocaust.

Time: 10:00 am



Tyanna Buie: Printmaker
August 8 – November 2, 2014

In this site-specific installation, Milwaukee artist Tyanna Buie employs a combination of screen printing, collage and ink-on-paper together with three-dimensional objects to convey her narrative of loss, impermanence, and unconventional family dynamics. Buie corrals this introspection and reflection into the gallery making the experience simultaneously personal and universal. Consciously or subconsciously, we all carry our past with us, and great art can tap into that in a constructive way. Tyanna Buie takes her past and makes something positive. Hopefully it will do the same for others.

Comedy by Barb Pease Weber- a Samuel French Production
Sylvia Goldberg’s troubles begin when the old teapot she purchased while in Israel for her grandson’s wedding turns out to be the abode of a geriatric genie named ‘Eugene’ with a bad back and a penchant for vodka and V8. Not only does this retired New Jersey teacher struggle trying to keep her new ‘friend’ a secret from her three best friends, but when Eugene’s former master tracks her down and threatens her at knifepoint, her very safety is at risk. Be careful what you wish for, Sylvia, it may just come true! A magical romantic comedy for seniors and “juniors” of all ages.

Cendrillon. Cenerentola. Cinderella. No matter what she’s called, everyone knows her story - an innocent girl, wronged by her dysfunctional family, winds up marrying a handsome, kind prince.

Tyanna Buie: Printmaker
August 8 – November 2, 2014

In this site-specific installation, Milwaukee artist Tyanna Buie employs a combination of screen printing, collage and ink-on-paper together with three-dimensional objects to convey her narrative of loss, impermanence, and unconventional family dynamics. Buie corrals this introspection and reflection into the gallery making the experience simultaneously personal and universal. Consciously or subconsciously, we all carry our past with us, and great art can tap into that in a constructive way. Tyanna Buie takes her past and makes something positive. Hopefully it will do the same for others.

Visit this new and profound exhibit about the impact of the Holocaust. In 1939 Hedwig and Paul Strnad of Prague sent a letter to Milwaukee cousin Alvin Strnad pleading for help to come to the United States.  They included 8 of Hedwig’s dress designs to show that they would be employable here.  Despite Alvin’s best attempts, Paul and Hedwig were not able to come to this country and they perished in the Holocaust. The Museum has had Hedwig’s dresses actually created to honor her legacy and to remember all of the talent lost in the Holocaust.

Tyanna Buie: Printmaker
August 8 – November 2, 2014

In this site-specific installation, Milwaukee artist Tyanna Buie employs a combination of screen printing, collage and ink-on-paper together with three-dimensional objects to convey her narrative of loss, impermanence, and unconventional family dynamics. Buie corrals this introspection and reflection into the gallery making the experience simultaneously personal and universal. Consciously or subconsciously, we all carry our past with us, and great art can tap into that in a constructive way. Tyanna Buie takes her past and makes something positive. Hopefully it will do the same for others.

Tyanna Buie: Printmaker
August 8 – November 2, 2014

In this site-specific installation, Milwaukee artist Tyanna Buie employs a combination of screen printing, collage and ink-on-paper together with three-dimensional objects to convey her narrative of loss, impermanence, and unconventional family dynamics. Buie corrals this introspection and reflection into the gallery making the experience simultaneously personal and universal. Consciously or subconsciously, we all carry our past with us, and great art can tap into that in a constructive way. Tyanna Buie takes her past and makes something positive. Hopefully it will do the same for others.
