Artist: mykulangelo
"Marks Making Memories - The Pursuit of Perfect Moments"

Whether displaying his creations alongside NYC designer Donna Karan
for an aids benefit, or just mixing it up with some 3rd graders for a
'fine art day' at a local grade school, mykulanjelo has been blessed
and honored to be a beacon of creative light and purpose. mykul's
desire is to inspire, enlighten and engage the oft neglected side of
human experience ~ the soul ~ through Art. He sees this as the
center of all our well-being and purpose.......that each one of us
has the capacity to see and grasp greater realms of inspiration
and creativity. These being accessed with just enough
encouragement and truth, can grow and begin to inform and
define a whole new way of seeing the world (life!). This process
of "beholding and reflecting" has ignited a continual feast of
inspired material and images that find their way into mykulanjelo's
handiworks. He simply just opens the eyes of his heart and mind
to the created world around him as well as to the subtle, nuanced
world of emotion and the human soul......

It has been said of some of mykul's works, that you cannot grasp
them in just one viewing; it takes repeated meditations to have the
layers of soul embedded in the works to reveal themselves over
time. This is one of the defining marks that pleases mykulanjelo
most about his offerings. It is his desire that as you engage your
own heart with his 'works', that you begin to find bits and pieces
that speak to you personally and you therefore embrace them
as your own. Then, take those elements with you to nourish
and entice your own soul to the purpose of beginning and
continuing your own art conversation with your life and let the
soul-expansion process begin!!

with substance, in truth

Silver Lake Intermediate presents  
Disney's Aladdin Jr 

7 p.m. Thursday, Friday & Saturday, Feb 22-24
1 p.m. Saturday, Feb 24 | Neudecker Main Stage

Staging and Musical Direction by Lynne Carlstein
Designed by Carrie Johnson, Eric Nelson and Sean Floeter

Following the success of last year’s CINDERELLA, Jr., Silver Lake Intermediate School
has decided to, once again, present a musical fairy tale.  But this year’s musical is from a
very different part of the world, the exotic land once known as Persia.  ALADDIN, Jr.
is the rags-to-riches tale of a young lad who discovers that being yourself is the best thing
to be…especially if you want to impress a girl! 

The Silver Lake production will open with a unique tribute to the story of Scheherazade
and the 1001 Arabian Nights.  Aladdin is one of those tales.  From the beautiful opening,
you enter the city of Agrabah and the excitement begins! 

The Silver Lake Drama program offers students a chance to develop their talents as actors
it’s true.  But being involved in a musical theater performance gives students increased
challenges with personal organization, teamwork, responsibility, maintaining high academic
standards all while building their skills as singers, dancers and actors. Backstage, we offer
students a chance to help run the technical aspects of the show, in lighting, sound and
running crew (the students in charge of moving the set).  These are demanding positions
that bring our students into the amazing OAC facility where they are trained by the high
school tech crew, sometimes building relationships that last their entire High School career! 

The students of Silver Lake Intermediate are excited to present ALADDIN, Jr.!  We look
forward to taking YOU to Persia… to Agrabah… to the Cave of Treasures… and to
“A Whole New World!”

Come see ALADDIN, Jr., presented by Silver Lake Intermediate School, at the
Oconomowoc Arts Center! Fun for the whole family!

Restoring Oconomowoc’s Orchestral History

The Chatfield instruments were donated to the 
Oconomowoc Area School District by Frank
Chatfield 
in 1937. They were comprised of two
violins, one viola 
and a cello. Chatfield, a long-time
city planner for 
Oconomowoc, took up the hobby
of 
building and repairing stringed instruments,
most notably, violins, violas and 
cellos.

He harvested wood for his instruments from trees
in the Lac La Belle Area, and some of that  wood,
which still exists, will be used to repair the instruments.
The donated instruments were used by students for 
several decades until they fell into disrepair and were
eventually put in storage. 

In 2015 OHS Principal Joseph Moylan had a decision to make, whether to
dispose of the instruments or preserve them. He chose to save them, but
not just for museum status. After consulting renowned luthier, Scott Sleider
of Wauwatosa, it was determined that the instruments could be restored to
playing condition.

The first instrument to be completed will be the cello in early 2018 with 
the others to follow shortly thereafter. The four instruments will be 
featured in a special concert in late spring of 2018 at the conclusion
of the OAC 10th anniversary season.

For further information on the Chatfield Project or to make a tax
deductable contribution, click here

The Chatfield Project will be funded through private donations from
members of the community and local charitable organizations, grant
monies and a noteworthy fundraising event.

This summer, OAC Director, Michael Duncan, received a donation of nine stringed
instruments which were transformed into one‐of‐a‐kind 
works of art by local and
regional artists. The collection will be 
auctioned off to the highest bidders to
benefit the Chatfield Project.
