Catching Up With Eco-Designer Timothy Westbrook

For most people, their first exposure to Timothy Westbrook was his short-lived run on the Lifetime TV show Project Runway.  But before that, Westbrook was theartist-in-residence at the Pfister Hotel. 

Since his 15 minutes of national fame, Westbrook has returned to his adopted hometown and goes full speed ahead with collaborations with dance companies; exhibits at the Milwaukee Art Museum and the Charles Allis Museum; and a future fashion show at the "Green Living Festival" at the Mitchell Park Domes.

Westbrook recently stopped by Lake Effect to share updates on his future projects and his love for the city that adopted him with open arms:
