Polar Bears, 2008 © Colleen Plumb
The Milwaukee Art Museum Photography Council held it's inaugural benefit last night, with curator Lisa Hostetler at the helm and lots of great items in the silent auction. The hardworking members of the Photography Council (note: Milwaukee is a great photography city!) included photographers Sonja Thomsen, Lindsay Lochman and Mel Trittin. And the crowd was full of interesting creatives: Photographers Jason Reblando, Shimon and Lindemann, Bob Smith, Sarah McEneany, Aron Gent and Tara Bogart, designers Patrick and Libby Castro, gallerist Deb Brehmer and Andy Adams of Flak Photo. Marilu and I were lucky to be the high bidders on the wonderful Colleen Plumb picture, above.
