You're in a bar. The lights go out. The shot glasses glow. The hunt is on. 

Milwaukee, WI – Here at Splash Studio, we're committed to providing you with the most fun, innovative experiences Milwaukee has to offer. To accomplish this, we have an entire department of 50 people with advanced degrees in everything from physics, chemistry, mechanical engineering, and even Latin, who we lock in a room for up to 15 days without food or water until they come up with the next great idea. It may put them close to death and nearly be a human rights violation, but at Splash Studio we can't think of any other way to inspire outrageous creativity than the fear of a slow and horrifying death. And wouldn't you know it, it worked again.

Julie Freund has found the perfect combination of her two passions: art and riding.

Milwaukee, WI – Julie Freund, Assistant Artist and Private Event Artist at Splash Studio, has loved horses for as long as she can remember. Growing up in New York, her mom ran a farm for retired show horses. Along with showing horses in competition herself, Julie remembers drawing and painting them as young as age four. It only seems natural that when it came to do her senior thesis at the Savannah College of Art and Design, she focused on the relationship between humans and horses as an athletic team.
