Preservation Racine, Inc invites you to attend their 40th Anniversary Garden Party

The event will feature garden tours, tours of historic buildings, floral workshops and the Venetian ARTifact Auction.

About the Venetian ARTifact Auction:
Deep in the heart of Racine, WI lives Fred Hermes, a founding member of THS and owner/operator of the “Basement Bijou.” In addition to building his own personal theatre, his personal collection includes a large selection of original architectural plaster moldings from the now demolished Venetian Theatre.

Earlier this year, Doug Wick and Preservation Racine partnered together to offer a selection of these pieces to local artists for reuse in new artwork. Displayed locally around Racine, these pieces are now going on the auction block to support Preservation Racine. Attend the event and buy your own piece of history.


Event Details:
When: Saturday, July 28, 2013

Where: The DeKoven Center, 600 21st Street

Admission: $30 advance, $35 at the door.
