the state's most comprehensive collection of Wisconsin art. Its Early Wisconsin
Collection (1830-1960) is the finest anywhere and is complemented by the work of
Milwaukee native and artist Carl von Marr (1858-1936). Contemporary in-state artists

solo exhibition series. The MWA is open Wednesdays through Fridays, 10:00 am to

museum promotes the appreciation and creation of visual art through engaging programming
and educational resources for all ages, thereby enriching the lives of everyone
