Join us for Neighborhood Night with FREE admission and special arts experiences on January 18 from 5-8 p.m.!
The Museum provides a variety of engaging arts experiences for families year round. During our January 18 Neighborhood Night, we are pleased to partner with Artists Working in Education (AWE), Milwaukee Public School’s Turnaround Arts program, and Milwaukee PBS for a special evening to celebrate the arts through performances, visual arts displays and project-based activities for the entire family. Join us for the following:
- In celebration of Artists Working in Education’s 20th anniversary, AWE will present opportunities to speak with local artists, participate in free visual arts projects and visit their birthday-themed photo booth.
- The Museum is proud to join community partners in the Cre8MKE network for the Year of the Arts campaign, which encourages MPS K-12 student families to participate in arts events throughout the city. All MPS students received a Year of the Arts passport that can be validated during the 2017-2018 school year at the Museum (on Neighborhood Night or during any visit!) and other participating arts locations. Students can turn in their passports (with at least 6 signatures) to MPS Central Services by May 1, 2018, for an opportunity to win prizes. Click here for more information.
- Enjoy special performances by the Roosevelt Middle School of the Arts African dancers and drummers.
- Milwaukee PBS will invite guests to discover their inner artist with Storytelling 101, an interactive program where kids can be the author and illustrator of their own stories.
- Stop by our Be A Maker space for a special printmaking activity.
Neighborhood Night is presented by Northwestern Mutual Foundation with additional support provided by Potawatomi Hotel and Casino’s Heart of Canal Street Program, US Bank and the Joseph and Vera Zilber Charitable Foundation, Inc. and media sponsor FOX6.
