April 28th – May 1st
The Pabst Mansion has partnered with the Milwaukee chapter of Ikebana International to synthesize the beauty of the Mansion and the art of Japanese floral arrangements. Over twenty ikebana displays will be positioned throughout the historic home to express the symbolic qualities of each floral element while also drawing upon the aesthetic, history and design of the Pabst Mansion. By interpreting the past, present and that which flows between through these meditative floral compositions, visitors are invited to reflect not only on this home and the family that once inhabited it, but also their own connections to the wider space and place around them.
All tours are self-guided, there will be both Pabst Mansion docents and ikebana artists present for each tour.
Live ikebana demonstrations will take place at 11am on April 28-30. There is no additional cost for viewing demonstrations.
