Well, it’s here. The first-ever Art of the Table event at the Museum starts Thursday, November 18. The family-friendly event features 22 art-inspired tabletop designs by area designers, including local artists and national retailers, who were given a
10 x 10 foot space within the galleries to create their nontraditional installations.
The event was inspired by the On Site installation in the Museum by Robert Therrien, called Under the Table. This larger-than-life dining room table is perched in the heart of Windhover Hall and is quite a sight to see.
And Friday features MAM After Dark: Under the Table, where visitors can experience the fantastic Art of the Table installations, dance to music from 88Nine Radio Milwaukee, snack on great food from Cafe Calatrava, and enjoy performances by UWM’s Dance and Digital Media departments. MAM After Dark starts at 5 p.m. and runs until midnight.
There’s a lot for everyone to do at Art of the Table over its four-day run, so check out the complete schedule of events today. Do not miss this creative and inspiring event at the Museum.
