The 730 Project
February 21 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
The 730 Project and Mo’s Steakhouse invite you to stop in for a cocktail, jazz piano with Jerry Weitzer, and the premier screening of “The 730” Project by Dick Blau.
Dick Blau, Professor Emeritus of Film at UWM, has been living at 730 North Plankinton Avenue, between Wisconsin and Wells in the very heart of downtown Milwaukee, and making photographs of his immediate neighborhood since 2009. Photographing at all times of the day and night through all weathers and seasons, Blau has built an archive that includes, among other things, photographs of historic buildings, the surrounding streets, and the river; parades, marches, workers, concertgoers, and passersby; random beauties on the sidewalks, small human dramas at the bus stops, and the parallel life of the neighborhood gulls.
In 2017, Blau donated 200 large archival prints from the 730 Project to the Milwaukee County Historical Society. Come join us to celebrate the establishment of the 730 Archive!
