Steve Meisner concert features family-donated art
WHITEWATER A painting by the late Judith Meisner that was donated by her family to the Whitewater Arts Alliance will be dedicated at a ceremony during the Savory Sounds Concert featuring a performance by her son Steve Meisner Thursday.
The dedication is scheduled between 11:30 a.m. and 12:45 p.m. in front of the Cultural Arts Center on 402 W. Main St., Whitewater, during Steve Mesiner and Friends’ polka concert.
The painting will be on permanent display at the Whitewater Arts Alliance’s Cultural Arts Center.
Judith Meisner was an artist early on and, inspired by the glamor of Hollywood movie stars, drew fashions in high school that would be used for the Katy Keene comic book series, according to a release from the Whitewater Arts Alliance.
After graduating from Clinton High School in 1959, she moved to Chicago to study art and worked part-time as a department store fashion model. She moved to Whitewater after her marriage to Verne Meisner in 1960, returned to school and received her Master’s Degree of Fine Arts from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. She taught at Phoenix Middle School.
The concert, sponsored by First Citizens State Bank and the Whitewater Arts Alliance, is free.
