Venue: Italian Community Center

The vision of the Milwaukee Y is a stronger, healthier Milwaukee where families of all incomes and backgrounds truly thrive. Our impact in Milwaukee is widespread, from teaching thousands of kids to swim each year to being one of the only safe spaces open seven-days-a-week in the neighborhoods we serve to helping to reduce the diabetes epidemic through proven, targeted programs. We also believe that lasting personal and social change happens in the places where our members live, work and play. That’s why in addition to our center-based programming, we are committed to being vocal advocates for healthy families and partnering with others to improve the greater good in Milwaukee beyond our four walls. To that end, in the spirit of Dr. King, the YMCA is sponsoring a day of service on January 19, 2015, making the holiday a day “on” instead of a day “off.”

Artist Lecture by Mila Teshaieva

Event Date: Thursday, January 29, 2015
Event Time: 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Venue: Haggerty Museum of Art
Description: For over four years, photographer Mila Teshaieva has documented the transformation of the three former Soviet republics on the shores of the Caspian Sea: Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, and Turkmenistan. The battle for control of the region's vast oil and gas reserves and the search for a national identity have led to far-reaching changes for the society and environment. Teshaieva's images reveal an atmosphere of insecurity, where people pin their hopes and expectations on a transformation whose direction remains uncertain. The project takes the viewer on a subtle and complex journey through the promises of a new oil region, raising questions as to the relationship between the state and private identity and the ties between past, present and future.

The lecture will be presented in the Appellate Courtroom of Marquette University's Eckstein Hall (Law School) followed by a reception in the museum.

This event is free to attend.
