Milwaukee’s creative and economic future came alive for more than 225 guests at the third Creative Fusion held May 2 to benefit MIAD scholarships.
Event chairs Jessie and Jason Allen, Cherie and Steve Barth, Kim and Marc Marotta and Tracy and Jay Rothman feted guests while celebrating MIAD’s educational and cultural leadership.
Emcee Marc Marotta thanked guests for becoming part of that groundbreaking leadership by supporting the 78% of MIAD students who are the first in their family to attend college.
"Now more than ever," said Marotta, "our city and our state need a steady stream of these highly talented students to fuel our economy and society."

Having "sculpted their image" in keeping with the evening’s theme, guests enjoyed silent and live auctions and the multidisciplinary works in the MIAD 2009 Senior Exhibition – all within the college’s unique, energetic ambience.
All proceeds from the event benefited MIAD scholarships, which help the 96% of MIAD students who receive financial aid.
