US BANK & FOX 6 NEIGHBORHOOD NIGHT


The third Thursday of every month from 5 - 8 p.m.
Enjoy FREE admission and evening hours on the third Thursday of every month.

Visitors during Neighborhood Night also have the opportunity to participate in special Be A Maker programs. Kids will design and build components for a large-scale 3D collaborative sculpture that will be displayed at BBCM, then construct their own pieces to take home. Mentors from BBCM and Milwaukee Makerspace will introduce tools, materials and techniques for endless ways to experiment and create.

Be A Maker programs during Neighborhood Night are presented by the Brady Corporation Foundation with additional support provided by the Maihaugen Foundation, and by a grant from the Milwaukee Arts Board and the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin.
