It's human nature to drive past an elegant home or stately mansion, and wonder "What must that place look like on the inside?"
The Muskego Public Library is hosting two authors and architects with the answers. M. Caren Connolly and Louis Wasserman, who wrote "Wisconsin's Own" will present some of their finds as they toured the state, including the Pabst Mansion in Milwaukee, the House of Seven Gables in Baraboo and Ten Chimneys in Genessee Depot.
The two will appear at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, and will offer a virtual tour of the state's notable and historic homes as well as the stories behind them.
Connolly has twenty years of expertise in estate landscape design, master planning and institutional and regional landscape architecture in projects across the country. In addition to practicing landscape architecture, Connolly has taught at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the Landscape Architecture Department as well as at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in both the
Architecture and the Visual Art departments.
Wasserman received his undergraduate degree in Architecture from the University of Illinois-Champagne Urbana, and his Masters in Architecture from the Harvard Graduate School of Design. Before he started his own firm in 1982, he worked for firms in Stockholm, Boston and Chicago and is the recipient of numerous awards, prizes and research grants.
With Connolly, Wasserman has illustrated and coauthored four best-selling and award-winning books for that build on their research and interests.
