“We are thrilled to be able to offer this opportunity to our visitors,” said Daniel Keegan, Museum director. “Since the program started, over 30,000 people have participated in Target Free First Thursdays.”
In addition to free admission, The Milwaukee Art Museum will also accept cash or check donations to help victims of the Center St. fire in Milwaukee’s Riverwest neighborhood.
“It is important to reach out to our friends and neighbors in a time of need, and I encourage the community to donate to those who have lost their homes and livelihoods,” said Keegan.
Checks should be made out directly to the Milwaukee Artist Resource Network, which has set up an emergency fund to benefit the artists affected by the fire.
The Museum’s feature exhibition is currently Posters of Paris, which highlights everything from theatre productions to the debaucherous cancan, bicycles to champagne, brightly hued, larger-than-life-size posters with bold typography and playful imagery punctuated the streets of turn-of-the-century Paris. Also on view is Face Jugs: Art and Ritual in 19th Century South Carolina, and contemporary installations by Tara Donovan and video artist Isaac Julien.
