Note from the editor
You ask Why Monroe St?.... That’s my backyard. Do you know of a corner of Wisconsin that has a concentration of artistic activity? It would take me 6 months of research to put together a comprehensive guide to the arts in Door County or Appleton, but for someone who lives in the area it could be done in 30 minutes.
