Urban America has a rich history of intercultural exchange, but it also has a troubling
history of segregation and racial tension and conflict.
In New York, we’ll visit Metropolitan Museum of Art, Chelsea Market, and important public spaces. In Milwaukee, we’ll explore the Milwaukee Art Museum, Lake Park, and other important places in the life of the city. Together we will examine “high” art and culture, the “melting pot” concept through, music, food and fashion, and the friction between developed and public “green” space in an urban landscape.
