Maggie Sasso is joined by research collaborator Laura Meine and moderator Darcie Kileen for a conversation about Too Much Sea for Amateurs and the history of the Breakwater Lighthouse. They will discuss the research that Meine provided for the project, and the way that artist and researcher worked together to illuminate the past of this iconic piece of architecture in Milwaukee's harbor. Opening up the conversation to include the audience, they would like to consider how metaphorical treatments of actual events and subjects can be used to spark broader conversations about Milwaukee in the present.
