What’s Happening at the Milwaukee Art Museum: March 14-March 20

Welcome to yet another busy week at the Museum, especially for kids and Frank Lloyd Wright fans!

Just opened, “Just the WRIGHT Size: Designing and Building Small Houses” is the new Kohl’s Art Generation Gallery feature exhibition. Try your hand at building as you learn from the pros. “Just the WRIGHT Size” considers Frank Lloyd Wright’s lessons for the present day, and in this hands-on exhibition, you will lean about the techniques Mr. Wright used to make small homes.

Also new is the Kohl’s Art Generation iPod Touch Tours, designed for kids 12 and under. These free, interactive tours help your visitors learn about art through games, videos, and scavenger hunts through the Museum’s Collection. Check out this video on Museum Manners!

Don’t forget, admission for kids 12 and under is free every day at the Museum.

For the adults, there’s a Frank Lloyd Wright Gallery Talk at 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 15, and an Express Talk at 12 p.m. on Thursday, March 17. Plus, Saturday, March 19 includes a Book Salon on Frank Lloyd Wright: An Autobiography at 10:30 a.m. Reservations for Saturday’s Book Salon are required.

Need more? There’s Story Time in the Galleries and Sketching in the Galleries on Saturday, and the Kohl’s Art Generation Open Studio on Sunday.

And, just opened, don’t miss The New Materiality: Digital Dialogues at the Boundaries of Contemporary Craft. This art-bending exhibition will make you question what you think you know about art, design, and craft.

    I was looking at paintings currently on view at the museum, and discovered that most frequently the artist’s name is not given as part of the identification of each piece. In addition there was no way (that I could find) to go to a page with further details of a particular work, for instance by clicking on the image, the title, or the “currently on view” label. Your website would be vastly improved by correcting this omission as soon as possible.

    Claudia – Thank you for your comment. We always appreciate feedback on our website and how we can improve our efforts to share information on our collection. Our staff works diligently to ensure that the objects in the permanent collection can be found online quickly and accurately through a variety of search criteria. We have been updating our online collections page recently, however, so perhaps you were searching when some of the information was unavailable. I encourage you to stop in to the Museum and peruse the Galleries, or look online at http://collection.mam.org/ where you can browse by “Artist” or “Category.” Good luck!

    -Kristin
