Greetings Packers fans! For those of you who haven’t been keeping up with Museum news, the Museum has placed a friendly-but-serious wager on Super Bowl XLV, featuring your Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The wager: If the Green Bay Packers win the Super Bowl, the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh will loan its Renoir “Bathers with Crab” to the Milwaukee Art Museum. If the Steelers win, the Milwaukee Art Museum will loan its Caillebotte “Boating on the Yerres” to Carnegie for a few months. It’s French Impressionist v. French Impressionist for the Lombardi Trophy and bragging rights this Sunday, February 6.
But before that, come down to the Museum and see the Caillebotte in person! Thursday, Feb. 3 is Target Free First Thursday, and a great opportunity to head down to the lakefront.
On Saturday, Feb. 5, come experience the opening of the Scholastic Art Awards and watch the awards ceremonies, happening throughout the day.
Also this week, in honor of Chinese New Year and Vietnamese New Year, Cafe Calatrava will feature culturally-inspired dishes to celebrate the festivities. Plus, kids 12 and under will receive a Licee for the event. What’s a Licee? Head down to Cafe Calatrava and find out!
GO PACK GO!
