Experience the Quality of Life in Sheboygan County with Andrea

Discover Wisconsin 2022 | Season 35

Did you know that the largest gathering of artists in Wisconsin takes place every June in Cedarburg? Are you familiar with Cambridge being home to a long tradition of pottery and ceramics arts? How about the working waterfront of Sturgeon Bay's rich maritime history? Or that Madison is home to an immense collection of artwork that is completely free to visit?

We’re visiting local artists, museums and events, exploring the impact art has on four communities across Wisconsin, and highlighting the history and culture that surround it.

01:03  Chazen Museum of Art on the UW-Madison campus. Join us on a personalized tour with the museum’s director Amy Gilman, who refers to the gallery as the largest art room on campus that’s not just for students. The museum strives to create a space that provides every visitor with a “Chazen moment”, where one can be free and engage with the artwork, understanding more of who we are as humans and how we live in this ever-changing world. Come as you are, sweatpants and all, and enjoy the museum that sometimes is a quiet and reflective space, and other times incredibly dynamic. Explore more for yourself: https://www.facebook.com/ChazenArtUW/

05:43  Door County Maritime Museum in Sturgeon Bay. This museum puts the rich history of one of Door County’s biggest industries right on display. We hear from the museum’s director Kevin Osgood, who starts out with some of the “unknown” facts surrounding the 102-year-old John Purves tugboat stationed outside, note: the guided tour is actually conducted by the same people who have been working on the restoration over the years! We then venture through the brand-new 10-story tower, which tells the maritime history of Door County from its geological formation all the way up to the working port of today. There are more than 275 shipwrecks just off the coast of Door County, with a large concentration up in Death’s Door. Before weather systems were in place, lighthouses were life or death during the severe storms every fall across the Great Lakes. In fact, Door County has 11 lighthouses! You can’t find that many lighthouses within this short a shoreline anywhere else in the United States. Learn more about how water defines this community and plan your visit today: https://www.facebook.com/dcmaritime

10:03  Cambridge Wood-Fired Pottery & Rowe Pottery Works. We join Mark Skudlarek to discuss the evolution of Rowe Pottery, an artisan studio and hand-crafted manufacturing facility first opened in the mid ‘70s, that is still in operation today. Many people thought potters were drawn to Cambridge because of the clay, but really it was because of the market and the growing community of individual studios rooted in the tradition of clay and wood-fired pots. Mark notes it’s almost like continuing to speak a language that’s being lost. Electric kilns or gas-fired kilns let you walk away from the process, whereas a wood-fired kiln is more visceral and requires constant maintenance. The temperament of these kilns is almost like an animal, so it’s no surprise the Chinese call theirs “Dragon kilns”, you’re feeding this beast - as the temperature gets hotter, its appetite becomes more veracious. Each year, there’s seasonal events that feature local pottery, including the Clay Collective Spring Tour and Fire Fest with its big dramatic sculpture reveal while at top temperature with flames a-blazing. Be sure to check these out on your next trip:

https://www.facebook.com/rowepottery

14:13  Cedarburg Artists Guild & Cedarburg Art Museum. Every June, painters flock to the Paint Cedarburg event from around the world to capture the historic beauty preserved there. Founder, Sandra McCutcheon-Pape, shares her role and efforts to preserve and restore the town’s historic charm. Cedarburg is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, as many of main street buildings have been around since the mid-1800s. The community has been able to buy and restore some of the local hidden gems, including the Woolen Mill in 1972 and the Washington House Inn which was built in 1884, now is now restored as an inn again. With its historical architecture, creek and several dams, no wonder Cedarburg is sometimes referred to as the most charming town in Wisconsin. Want to test your artistic abilities?

Waupaca: From the Chain to Main | S35 Ep. 2

Join us for an exploration of Wauwatosa’s history as we meander the city’s most stunning parks and landscapes. To get a real taste of Tosa’s past, Eric chats it up with local historian Jeff Roznowski at The Landing at Hoyt Park (https://friendsofhoytpark.org). Eric walks the Menomonee foot bridge at Hoyt Park, where the Menomonee Native Americans used to fish, and uncovers ancient treasure at Hartung Park, a landscape sprinkled with prehistoric fossils (www.wauwatosa.net/discover-tosa/parks/hartung-park). Then, he discovers the mysteries of County Grounds Park, still home to many remnants of an 1800s insane asylum (https://tosahistory13.wixsite.com/tosa). 

Now that Eric’s legs are all warmed up, the next item on the agenda calls for some shopping. One of Wauwatosa’s main attractions, our choices range from large retail stores in the Mayfair Mall and Mayfair Collection to local shopping in and near The Village of Tosa. Exhibiting a Northwoods feel and a cozy ambiance, The Flannel Fox is a Midwestern gem and a great place to shop for locally-made goods and eco-friendly products (www.flannelfoxtosa.com). The coziness doesn’t stop there. Nestled in the basement of a stone-walled home, just outside of The Village, the Cream City Soap Co. is quite a fun secret to stumble upon (www.creamcitysoapcompany.com). Eric learns from one of the co-owners, Alex Hero, that all soaps are made in-house and all products exhibit plastic-free packaging. We head back to The Village for a product Wisconsinites can’t say no to - cheese. Another small business that supports local farmers, The Village Cheese Shop emphasizes the importance of community (https://villagecheesetosa.com). 

After all that walking, Eric’s stomach is ready to get in on the action. His first stop for food resides in what was once The Village’s first bank, now Le Reve Patisserie and Cafe (https://lerevecafe.com). A full menu of French baked goods and dishes made with local ingredients, this restaurant is not one to miss. We explore more baked goods and more local flavors at Rocket Baby Bakery (www.rocketbabybakery.com). At Ca’Lucchenzo, we explore an elegant yet homelike dining experience that serves up some unique spins on Italian cuisine (www.calucchenzo.com). Then we hop on board for a culinary tour of Italy at Ristorante Bartolotta dal 1993 where we join Founder Paul Bartolotta and Executive Chef Juan Urbieta who share their story and love for Italian cooking (www.bartolottas.com/ristorante-bartolotta).

Eric’s food exploration turns adolescent as he crushes some donuts at Cranky Al’s (www.crankyals.com), then heads to Ruckus and Glee (https://ruckusandglee.com) to play with some toys and partake in a foam sword fight with Jackson. Later, he meets up with his god kids at First and Bowl (https://firstandbowl.com), where he challenges them in basketball Connect 4, football bowling and a game of giant bags. They tucker him out a bit more at Hart Park in some curling and racing around the track. 

Finally, we meet up with Jeff again for some final notes about Wauwatosa’s history. A community that mirrors the essence of a firefly’s guiding light, it’s a great place for so many to call home.

Join us for an exploration of Wauwatosa’s history as we meander the city’s most stunning parks and landscapes. To get a real taste of Tosa’s past, Eric chats it up with local historian Jeff Roznowski at The Landing at Hoyt Park (https://friendsofhoytpark.org). Eric walks the Menomonee foot bridge at Hoyt Park, where the Menomonee Native Americans used to fish, and uncovers ancient treasure at Hartung Park, a landscape sprinkled with prehistoric fossils (www.wauwatosa.net/discover-tosa/parks/hartung-park). Then, he discovers the mysteries of County Grounds Park, still home to many remnants of an 1800s insane asylum (https://tosahistory13.wixsite.com/tosa).

Now that Eric’s legs are all warmed up, the next item on the agenda calls for some shopping. One of Wauwatosa’s main attractions, our choices range from large retail stores in the Mayfair Mall and Mayfair Collection to local shopping in and near The Village of Tosa. Exhibiting a Northwoods feel and a cozy ambiance, The Flannel Fox is a Midwestern gem and a great place to shop for locally-made goods and eco-friendly products (www.flannelfoxtosa.com). The coziness doesn’t stop there. Nestled in the basement of a stone-walled home, just outside of The Village, the Cream City Soap Co. is quite a fun secret to stumble upon (www.creamcitysoapcompany.com). Eric learns from one of the co-owners, Alex Hero, that all soaps are made in-house and all products exhibit plastic-free packaging. We head back to The Village for a product Wisconsinites can’t say no to - cheese. Another small business that supports local farmers, The Village Cheese Shop emphasizes the importance of community (https://villagecheesetosa.com).

After all that walking, Eric’s stomach is ready to get in on the action. His first stop for food resides in what was once The Village’s first bank, now Le Reve Patisserie and Cafe (https://lerevecafe.com). A full menu of French baked goods and dishes made with local ingredients, this restaurant is not one to miss. We explore more baked goods and more local flavors at Rocket Baby Bakery (www.rocketbabybakery.com). At Ca’Lucchenzo, we explore an elegant yet homelike dining experience that serves up some unique spins on Italian cuisine (www.calucchenzo.com). Then we hop on board for a culinary tour of Italy at Ristorante Bartolotta dal 1993 where we join Founder Paul Bartolotta and Executive Chef Juan Urbieta who share their story and love for Italian cooking (www.bartolottas.com/ristorante-bartolotta).

Touring Tosa | S35 Ep. 3

Wisconsin is home to a growing community that's embracing and producing local hand-crafted spirits, several of which are made directly from grains grown right here in America's Dairyland. Newly-thriving Wisconsin-born Bourbon is providing spirit enthusiasts with distinct flavors and bucket-list destinations across the state.

In this episode of Discover Wisconsin, host Andrea Boehlke visits four Wisconsin Bourbon producers to discuss how they started, their specialty in the distilling and blending process, and their vision for the future of spirits in Wisconsin. Andrea's tour of the Wisconsin Bourbon Trail starts in downtown Milwaukee as Central Standard Craft Distillery opens their doors to discuss how they started in the industry and provide our viewers with an education in mixology of a Wisconsin staple, the Old Fashioned. Andrea heads north to Fond du Lac to meet with the Retzer family on their family farm, home to Ledgerock Distillery. Jay and Heidi Retzer invite us to share in their history of taking a chance to turn the grains grown on the family farm into spirits shared across the region. 

Discover Wisconsin's introduction into Wisconsin Bourbon would not be complete without a visit to J. Henry & Sons in Dane, Wisconsin. Andrea tours the Henry family farm and takes on the challenge to blend her own Bourbon with Joe Jr. She is then introduced to owners Joe and Liz Henry, and discusses what makes their tasting room and Bourbon tours so special for Bourbon enthusiasts. Closing our episode is a visit to Cambridge, Wisconsin the home to Dancing Goat Distillery. Nick Maas visits with Andrea to talk about the rich history in spirits, and Bourbon, in the Maas family and the creation of Dancing Goat Distillery. Nick explores the senses with Andrea while they taste Bourbon. Discover Wisconsin was also granted private access to visit the inside of Dancing Goat Distillery's rickhouse.
