Maggie Sasso is joined by research collaborator Laura Meine and moderator Darcie Kileen for a conversation about Too Much Sea for Amateurs and the history of the Breakwater Lighthouse. They will discuss the research that Meine provided for the project, and the way that artist and researcher worked together to illuminate the past of this iconic piece of architecture in Milwaukee's harbor. Opening up the conversation to include the audience, they would like to consider how metaphorical treatments of actual events and subjects can be used to spark broader conversations about Milwaukee in the present.

Re-imagining Mary Magdalene: Female Disciple, Witness and Icon
The Haggerty Museum of Art hosted "Re-imagining Mary Magdalene: Female Disciple, Witness and Icon" by McGuire, Kies Family Associate Professor in the humanities and associate professor of religion at Haverford (Pa.) College, in conjunction with the Haggerty’s 25th anniversary and the Centennial Celebration of Women at Marquette.
McGuire explored the visual images of Mary Magdalene and Biblical and other literary references to her throughout the history of Christianity, alongside contemporary images of Magdalene in literature and film. A focus of McGuire’s talk was artistic representations of Magdalene in medieval, Renaissance and Baroque works, including the painting Mary Magdalene in Penitence by Francisco Trevisani (1656-1746) from the Haggerty’s permanent collection.
Guest lecturer Dr. Robert S. Mattison
Mattison is the Marshall R. Metzgar Professor of art history at Lafayette College in Easton, Pa.

He is the recipient of the Sears-Roebuck Award for teaching and scholarship and the Jones Lecture Award.
Guest performer Jon Mueller
Milwaukee drummer and percussionist Jon Mueller presented his new solo percussion work, Physical Changes. Jim Shoenecker and David Bailey appeared with Mueller in a performance that combined percussion, electronic music and video to turn the fundamental concepts of rhythm and percussion into an entirely new experience that’s heard, seen and felt.
Mueller has been an active drummer and percussionist since the mid-80s, working regularly with the group Collections of Colonies of Bees. He has performed throughout the United States, Japan and Europe and played or recorded with members of Swans, Wilco, Bon Iver and Rhys Chatham’s Guitar Trio, among others. The performance was offered in conjunction with the Jump Cut Pop exhibition on view at the Haggerty through October 4.
