In late March, this semester’s group of Satellite teens took a field trip to the Chipstone Foundation in Fox Point, WI.

You probably knew that Chipstone has a great decorative arts collection and produces progressive exhibitions in the Lower Level of the Milwaukee Art Museum. What you might not know is that they also have a site in Fox Point, where they host college-level age groups.

Chipstone has visited our teen programs before, but we had never visited Chipstone. They generously offered to have the Satellite teens visit this spring, so on one of the first warm (well, warm-ish) days of the year, we took a scenic bus ride north up Lake Drive to visit Chipstone director Jon Prown and curators Sarah Carter and Claudia Mooney.
