What’s Happening at the Milwaukee Art Museum: July 11-July 17

Contemporary Chinese Warriors, Yue Minjun, 2006

Welcome to another sweltering week in Milwaukee, with big things happening at the Museum.

Have you seen the latest installation in the Summer of CHINA series? It’s called Contemporary Chinese Warriors and it’s by Chinese artist Yue Minjun. The 26 satirical statues are located in the Museum’s Contemporary Galleries, on the Main Level.

Also this week, there’s Gallery Talks and Express Talks on Way of the Dragon and The Emperor’s Private Paradise.

For those of you heading to Bastille Days in Cathedral Square, be sure to stop at the Kohl’s Color Wheels van for some make-and-take art fun for the kids.

And don’t forget, Sunday, July 17 is Kohl’s Art Generation Family Sundays: Chinese Treasures, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Bring the whole family down (kids 12 and under are FREE) and enjoy music, dance, and more.

Summer is already half-over, so stop in today to experience the Summer of CHINA before it closes. The Museum is open seven days a week, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (8 p.m. on Thursdays) through Labor Day.
