MOWA collaborates with Milwaukee’s premiere lakefront retirement community Saint John’s On The Lake to further awareness of Wisconsin art and artists. The gallery features four exhibits every year and runs in conjunction with Milwaukee’s Gallery Night and Day. Opening receptions and artists’ talks are part of the celebration and help create more awareness and appreciation for the work.
now on view:
The Big Picture
Friday, April 19–Wednesday, July 17
The Big Picture proves ‘big’ isn’t just about size. Artists Dave Niec, Kathy Hofmann, and Vicki Reed are masters of creating grand images. Though smaller in scale, their art will pull you into sweeping landscapes, wide open skies and expansive environs that extend far past the frames in which they are hung.

Sunday, May 5 l 11:00-4:00
Join the Milwaukee Museum Mile Partners for a fun filled day along the mile with free or reduced rate admission at all five locations, children's activities, docent led tours, give-aways, and light refreshments.
