Alan W. Moore is an art historian and activist based in Madrid whose work addresses cultural economies and groups and the politics of collectivity. Moore helped to found ABC No Rio after participating in Colab's Real Estate Show (1979), one of the best-known artist squat actions in New York history. He is the author of Art Gangs: Protest & Counterculture in New York City (2011), which explores the work of artist groups formed after 1968, such as the Art Workers Coalition and Group Material, collectives that greatly informed today's international art world. He is also the co-editor of the book ABC No Rio Dinero: The Story of a Lower East Side Art Gallery (1985). Moore earned a PhD in art history from the City University of New York and his writings have appeared in such publications as Julie Ault's "Alternative Art NY" and Blake Stimson and Gregory Sholette "Collectivism After Modernism." His upcoming book "Art Squats" focuses on social centers in Europe.

Under the auspices of s(o)ul, Sara Daleiden directs the MKE<->LAX initiative. s(o)ul focuses on culture production and exchange through the creation of social interactions in developing landscapes. With a relationship to the arts, education and advocacy, s(o)ul consults with nonprofit and for-profit entities, as well as cultural workers of many disciplines, from emerging to established levels. With bases in Los Angeles and Milwaukee, the agency offers support for empathetic, structural development of individual, organizational and community identity, embracing various scales of experimentation, connection and production.

Shop local, support local, drink, eat, and have fun with your neighbors!

A celebration of all things local, Hover Craft is a venue that features a diverse range of creative individuals. Our main purpose is to offer an opportunity for Milwaukee-based artists, crafters, makers and performers to connect with their own community through showcasing and selling to their admirers directly. Additionally we offer ways to incorporate locally owned businesses by offering information to engage the public and encourage buying locally throughout holiday season and after.

Hover Craft is an annual buy-local event established in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 2010 by Alyssa Schulte, Cortney Heimerl, Ashley Chapman and Vanessa Andrew as a way to showcase the unique elements of our fair city.

Vendors range from seasoned artisans to amateur crafters and because of the amount of interest and the limited space, this is a juried event. We carefully choose participants not based on experience, but based on originality, execution and creativity. We are very interested in sourcing creatives from all backgrounds, whether from an established business or hobby crafters. Hover Craft wants to encourage creative people to create. We want to continuously strive to mine the depths of our community to foster a rotation of many individuals and continue to keep this event fresh for our attendants.

$2 Admission, children are free!
