PANEL DISCUSSION: ANATOMY OF AN AVENUE: NORTH, FROM THE LAKEFRONT TO PEWAUKEE
INOVA/Kenilworth, 2155 N. Prospect Ave.
FREE
More than any other major thoroughfare in the Milwaukee area, North Avenue links neighborhoods, cities and counties. Beginning at the lakefront bluff, traversing the central city, continuing through Wauwatosa and ending at a dead-end turnaround in the town of Pewaukee some 16 miles from its beginning, North Avenue is a microcosm of our region. Nohl Fellow Barbara J. Miner has organized this one-hour panel discussion in conjunction with her photo essay, "Anatomy of an Avenue," which follows North and examines what unites and divides Milwaukee as a community. It is designed as a visual spur to challenge assumptions and to encourage people to get to know neighborhoods that may seem as distant as far-away countries but that are, literally, only down the street. The panel will be emceed by Joel McNally and Cassandra Cassandra, co-hosts of Morning Magazine on AM 1290 WMCS, and will include Miner and other representatives from the communities along North Avenue.
