Lake Effect Weekend: Attracting Young Farmers, 'Damn The Old Tinderbox!', 'On Belonging'

This weekend on Lake Effect:

We learn about the challenges of attracting young people to taking up a life on the farm. Then how Milwaukee's Newhall House hotel was the perfectly designed place for one of the deadliest fires in U.S. history. Plus we speak with two artists about their new exhibit, On Belonging, and how it looks at race, identity, and history.


  • Dave Kozlowski, Pinehold Gardens; Sara Krohn, Village Farmstead
  • Matthew Prigge, author, Damn the Old Tinderbox!: Milwaukee’s Palace of the West and the Fire That Defined an Era
  • Nirmal Raja & Lois Bielefeld, artists & creators of On Belonging
