“The Lakeshore Park is a hidden gem,” according to Susan Steinhafel, chair of the Lakeshore Art Stroll. “Lakeshore Art Stroll participants will enjoy the 1.7 mile paved walking path that meanders through natural wild grasses and prairie garden areas created to attract migratory waterfowl and an abundance of other animals, birds and butterflies. An ideal habitat created…and we have a front row seat!” The Lakeshore Art Stroll is a great opportunity to explore the Lakeshore Park together as we bond as a community. Learn about the Calatrava Rose, designed and developed for the Milwaukee Art Museum Garden Club and the Museum by Will Radler, world renowned developer of the Knockout Rose. “Gather your friends and family for a delightful end of summer morning, filled with the beauty of nature and art,” encourages Pat Netzow, co-chair of the event. “There is something for everyone, a beautiful walk, artists to watch and an opportunity to learn about the gardens at the Museum and Lakeshore Park.” More details at www.mamgardenclub.org or like us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/mamgardenclub The Milwaukee Art Museum Garden Club is a support group of the Milwaukee Art Museum.
