"we should make each community we do business in a better place because we're there." SAMUEL C. JOHNSON, FOUNDER OF JOHNSON BANK Agrace Butterfly Gala: 15th Annual Celebration How do projects like this make a difference? In two ways: First, the process of making gives artists release and the opportunity to let their voices be heard through their visual creations; secondly, the audience responds in ways that complete the artworks with their interpretations based in their own life experiences. Both experiences require active participation and offer the opportunity for growth. What's next for the "Exquisite Uterus Project?" We want it to continue to grow and evolve, to help women find their voices, express their deep connection to the issues surrounding their bodies both personal and public. Women who did not participate, who see the show, tell us every time they want to make their own exquisite uterus. We don't want to stop them! Join us for an unforgettable evening of gourmet dining and dancing at Agrace's 15th Annual Butterfly Gala on Oct. 26 at Nakoma Golf Club. Guests will enjoy exquisite food, one-of-a-kind auction items and music from The Eddie Butts Band that will have everyone dancing the night away. All proceeds benefit the patients and families served by Agrace's hospice and palliative care programs. Visit or call Agrace at (608) 327-7239 for more information, or to reserve your seat by Oct. 11, 2013. ••• "Exquisite Uterus Project" is on display at the UW-Milwaukee Union Gallery, Sept. 20Oct. 11; Preview the works by visiting the project's Pinterest board: exquisite-uterus-preview-board.
