Gunther von Hagens’ BODY WORLDS 1 is the first anatomical exhibition of plastinated human bodies which was made available to the wide public. Since 1995, it's attracted nearly 25 million visitors in over 40 cities in Asia, Europe, and North America. And it's coming to the Milwaukee Public Museum beginning January 18th for a limited engagement.
See the human body like never before. From individual organs to whole-body plastinates, BODY WORLDS 1 offers visitors a rare opportunity to see the complexity of human anatomy and physiology.
Never before has an exhibition offered such an intimate look at the human body. More than 200 real human specimens -- whole bodies, healthy and diseased organs, body sections and slices -- present a one-of-a-kind anatomy and physiology lesson.
See how your body's systems relate to one another and work in concert to help you function and survive.

Discover Your Personal Style with Ashley’s free design seminar April 23 and 24
(April 18, 2008) – On Wednesday, April 23 at 7:00 p.m. Ashley Furniture HomeStore in Appleton will host Traditional, Country, Contemporary – What is Your Personal Style?, a free design seminar open to the public. This seminar will repeat in the Green Bay HomeStore on Thursday, April 24 at 7:00 p.m.
This is the third in a series of well-received monthly seminars hosted at the HomeStores.
Presented by Sandra Dahlke, visual merchandise manager & accessory buyer for the eastern Wisconsin Ashley Furniture HomeStores, participants attending Traditional, Country, Contemporary – What is Your Personal Style? will be asked to take an informative quiz on their knowledge of varying design styles. Dahlke will then explain the unique aspects of several styles, including “eclectic”, and teach participants how to combine styles effectively. “Often, consumers enter the buying process without a plan,” explains Dahlke. “It’s my goal to arm this seminar’s participants with tips and ideas on which items to purchase for varying styles, so they can make educated decision to pull their rooms together successfully.”
This interactive evening will end with one-on-one design consultations from Ashley’s professional design team. As in previous months, participants are encouraged to bring photographs of their living rooms and bedrooms to share with the design professionals.
To register, call Ashley Furniture HomeStore in Green Bay (920.965.6640) or Appleton (920.968.0013). There is no cost to attend these seminars, but space is limited. Refreshments will be served.
