River of light

I recently had the opportunity to take a behind-the-scenes tour of the Milwaukee Public Museum here in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The tour included viewing a few future exhibits, such as “Beads of Africa and the Pacific.” This exhibit will feature a variety of jewelry and other wearable beadwork from these locales, and will be on display during the Bead&Button Show, June 1–8. Tours for this exhibit will be self guided. To plan your trip to the Milwaukee Public Museum, visit www.mpm.edu.
