Art Preview

Katie Musolff, a 2004 graduate of Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design, stakes her name on her award-winning oils. Her near-life-size portraits capture the unique persona and soul of her subject in masterful strokes, but a recent personal experience led her to redirecting the focus of her art and her life. This reevaluation of her subject matter and primary medium infuses her upcoming exhibition "Drawn from Life," which opens on Gallery Night at the Elaine Erickson Gallery, located on the first floor of the Third Ward's Marshall Building.

As patrons mingle, artists will be plugging away on mixed-media sculptures inside the building...

With a French flag on the right side of the mural and an American flag on the left, Aquino’s artwork illustrates the personal story of restaurant owner Jacques Chaumet traveling from France to Milwaukee.

Ruling party’s ally removes opposing party from ballot

If this is how UW-Milwaukee students are learning how democracy works in the real world, we’re in trouble. Last week’s two-day election for the Student Association featured allegations of voter intimidation, bribery, poll workers filling out ballots for voters and censorship.
