Student Work Enlivens the Art Museum

Members of UW-Milwaukee's "Object Group" at the Museum's MAM After Dark

Are you looking forward to the upcoming 2011 Scholastic Art Awards exhibition as much as I am? I enjoy viewing the diversity of amazing work by so many talented young people and I really love meeting the artists and their proud families and teachers when they come to see their work on display at the Milwaukee Art Museum (on view in our Schroeder Galleria Feb 5 – Mar 6, 2011).  It is such a thrill for those kids and it’s an exciting time of year for all the Museum staff, too.

Over the past year, the Museum Store has had the pleasure of developing our own special relationship with a local group of students–Object Group, UW-Milwaukee’s Jewelry and Metalsmithing Student Organization.  Check out their “Bespoke Objekt” blog here.
