Milwaukee Art Museum

Visitors can connect with their inner art connoisseur by exploring the Milwaukee Art Museum. Located right on Lake Michigan and recognizable for its moveable Burke Brise Soleil (or “wings”), Wisconsin’s largest art museum features more than 2,500 artworks from a diversity of artists in dialogue across time, place, and cultures, including celebrated masterworks by O’Keeffe, Monet, Picasso, and more.   

All summer, visitors can travel to France through the exhibition Always New: The Posters of Jules Chéret, the first solo exhibition for the French artist Jules Chéret (1836–1932). Nineteenth-century Paris comes to life in the galleries through more than 100 vibrant, large-scale posters advertising popular products and performances.  

From July 14 to 17, the Streets of Paris event brings the joie de vivre of French-speaking countries to the Museum. This weekend extravaganza features live music, dance performances, a beer garden, film screenings, and more.  

Museum hours are Tues-Sun, 10am–5pm (8pm Thurs.). More on admissions, events, and dining at mam.org.
