Today @ the Milwaukee Art Museum

Using a finicky mix of antique equipment and modern techniques, Wisconsin photographers John Shimon and Julie Lindemann have focused their lenses on the many people they encounter from day-to-day, capturing extraordinarily telling portraits of mostly ordinary people. The Milwaukee Art Museum’s new . . .

Today @ the Milwaukee Art Museum

British artists Gilbert and George met at St. Martins College of Art in London, 1967, and have remained creative partners ever since.

Meet the Milwaukee Art Museum’s new director

On day two of his new job, Daniel Keegan is juggling the usual problems of a transcontinental move. First there is his car, shipped to Milwaukee from San Jose, Calif., and damaged on arrival. With wind chills hovering near zero, it’s not the greatest day to wait at the bus stop, but one senses that Keegan is warmed by the anticipation of his work. Keegan is the new director of the Milwaukee Art Museum. He’s excited about his job. Although he came here from California, Keegan has more than nodding familiarity with Wisconsin winters. He’s a native of Green Bay, where his mother and siblings still live. “I’m the only one who left Green Bay,” says Keegan, who enjoyed two decades in academia, including chairing the art department at West Virginia Wesleyan College, before becoming director of the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art in Kansas City and the San Jose Museum of Art. “They think I’m crazy for coming back because of the weather.”

Art Preview

In the period between World War I and II, photographic art appeared to “change the world by trying to see it differently,” using new technology and technical expression discovered through the lens of a camera. Recording this change in photography is the Milwaukee Art Museum’s latest exhibit, planned . . .

Today @ the Milwaukee Art Museum - 1:30 PM

In the early 1900s, American artist George Bellows became renowned for his vivid (and frequently gritty) depictions of street life in New York City. Some of his most infamous pieces documented brutal boxing matches. These bold pieces of art speak for themselves, but those craving additional insight into . . .
