Wednesday on Lake Effect: Milwaukee's Waterways, Food In Sociology, Museum of Wisconsin Art

Wednesday on Lake Effect:

On Earth Day, a new documentary by historian John Gurda examines the region's history through our waterways. Then, how a sociologist connects our shared understanding of the past, and the material world – through food. The Museum of Wisconsin Art celebrates partners in life and art: photographers J. Shimon & J. Lindemann. And Broccoli Theatricals presents Neil Simon’s Laughter on the 23rd Floor.
