Every month, Adam Carr from the Milwaukee Neighborhood News Service talks about some of the community events happening in Milwaukee. But of course, this month is a little different.
With the coronavirus pandemic and Gov. Tony Evers' safer-at-home order, it’s a little difficult to go and explore things happening in our community. But Carr has you covered — highlighting things you can experience from the comfort and safety of your own home.
1. Virtual museums
One museum that was virtual even before the coronavirus is America's Black Holocaust Museum. Scheduled to make its physical re-opening in 2020, the virtual museum has over 3,200 pages dedicated to promoting racial repair, reconciliation, and healing.
2. Enjoy art and artists
From dancing to painting, many Milwaukee artists are now livestreaming their practice and inviting people to participate.
3. Experience what the library has to offer online
The public library system in Milwaukee has a wealth of online resources. You can stream music for free all day, they offer tutors for all grade levels, check out ebooks and audiobooks, and have many other learning resources. Plus, if you don't have a library card, you can register for one online and start using everything in the digital library for free.
4. Recreational classes
5. Dine locally
Many Milwaukee restaurants are still open and offering curbside pick-up or delivery. This is a great time to try a new spot or order from your favorite restaurant. If you're looking to try something new, check out 14 local restaurants where you can get a great meal.
