2014: A Tribute to the Life of Kathy Boritzke


 

The Oconomowoc Festival of the Arts showcased a new exhibit at the 44th annual art festival called  Mindful Mixed Mediums.  The exhibit featured a playful fusion of poetry, sculpture, and musical composition created by local students sponsored by the Kathy Boritzke Memorial Fund.  


Kathy Boritzke was a local artist and long time member of the Oconomowoc Festival of the Arts.  She was of inspiring character and  full of passion and selfless giving.  Her dynamic appearance in the 2011 
One Vision:  A Fusion of Art & Poetry held at the Oconomowoc Arts Center was the inspiration for this year’s new exhibit.  


Local students grades 5-8 had the opportunity to work with ekphrastic poet, Cristina Norcross, and sculpture artist, Layl McDill, to fuse the literary and visual arts.  Torrin Hallet, the Oconomowoc Festival of the Arts Virginia Harris 2013 Scholarship winner worked with Dave Reul, advisor/coordinator for the music portion of the project, to provide an original composition to accompany the exhibit (view video production above).  The mediums were fused together and presented by local artist, Amy Kavelaris, downtown business owner of the Bloom Prints Studio, for the public exhibition held August 16th-17th at Fowler Park.
