Houdini art talk in Appleton, Nov. 21

The Trout Museum of Art in Appleton, Wisconsin will hold a panel discussion called "Inspired by Houdini" on Saturday, November 21 at 1:00 PM. The talk is part of the museum's Art of Conversation partnership with Post Crescent Media in which they discuss art around the city. The Trout Museum is located in Houdini Plaza. Here are the details.

Saturday, Nov. 21, 2015, 1:00-2:00pm: Inspired by Houdini 
Harry Houdini references and art are everywhere in this town. There's even a new bust of the master illusionist just steps away from the museum.

A free chat about Appleton's favorite son, Harry Houdini, will take place in the Fox Cities Building for the Arts' board room. (Be sure to take a peek at the free exhibit on the third floor on your way into the discussion. It's one of the best-kept secrets in Appleton.)

Panelists include John Adams, curator of Mile of Music's Feather and Bone art gallery, which had a Houdini theme this year, and Tom Boldt, a self-proclaimed Houdini fanatic who helped secure the bust for Houdini Plaza.

We'll look at Houdini-inspired art and talk about his lasting impression on the art world. Then we'll take a walk outside to see the bust.
