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.
The First Tee is holding an annual benefit concert featuring the band Vic Ferrari. The benefit will be held at the Radisson Convention Center at 2040 Airport Drive, Green Bay, WI 54313. Funds will go to scholarships for local youth, allowing them to attend The First Tee program, which teaches youth life skills through the game of golf.
The First Tee reaches over 8,500 youth in the Green Bay area and uses golf as an activity to demonstrate and master the life skills inherent in the game. Over 4,000 youth from area schools and other organizations will receive full scholarships to this program.
The mission of The First Tee is to positively impact the lives of young people in the community by providing educational programs to promote character development and life-enhancing values through the game of golf. In the program, children learn these nine core values: honesty, integrity, sportsmanship, respect, confidence, responsibility, perseverance, courtesy, and judgment.
The First Tee’s vision is to partner with local affiliates and develop new facilities for education. They aim to positively impact the lives of 15,000 young people by creating incentives at local schools, youth agencies, and golf facilities to begin new First Tee programs.
Tickets for The First Tee’s first annual benefit concert featuring Vic Ferrari are available at three Festival Foods locations in the area: 2250 W.

Part of the 2008 month-long Tournees French Film Festival, hosted by Lawrence University. The film will be shown in French with English subtitles. Admission is $3 at the door.
Set in Chad following a devastating civil war, the film follows young Atim, whose father was murdered before his birth during the conflict, as he seeks revenge on his father’s killer. Instead of finding a cold-blooded murderer, Atim meets a charitable baker seeking redemption through religion. Atim can not bring himself to kill the man in cold blood, so he goes to work for him as his assistant, creating a strange and complex relationship. The film received the Special Jury Prize at the 2006 Venice Film Festival.
