Sue Schrader, Executive Director, Cedarburg Cultural Center

Located in the heart of the Cedarburg National Historic District, the Cedarburg Cultural Center has been the cultural hub of the community for over 30 years. We are Ozaukee County’s center for art, music and history.

Music and art are my passions. So far, I’ve spent my career advocating for artists, so my new position as Executive Director at the Cedarburg Cultural Center is a dream come true.

From the beginning, the Center has enabled access and participation in the visual and performing arts, humanities and local heritage. A free gallery with frequently changing exhibits surrounds the Centre’s performance space, which features music, drama, comedy, and educational presentations.

I stand in the middle of one of our most creative and current exhibitions featuring the work of artist Al Buss. His current show with Jim Buivid and our Summer in Wisconsin offering runs through August 28. We also just celebrated the 10th anniversary of our Blueburg Café, Wisconsin’s first Open Mic Night, which takes place on the first Wednesday of every month. Art classes are also offered at the Center for children and adults and the Centre’s public spaces can be rented out for events ranging from business meetings to wedding receptions.

I am fortunate to work with a wonderful board, staff and volunteers who work hard to advance our mission. COVID has been tough on our arts communities, so buy artwork that speaks to you, catch a live concert, or become a member of your local arts organization.
