Welcome to IPAMA, the Institute for the Preservation of African American Music and Arts. Find the “Light of Black” with the featured Gallery Night artist, Marlon Howard Banks. Banks, a Milwaukee native pays homage, in the Tucker Gallery of Visiting Artists, to an African diaspora of storytelling traditions. Traditions combine with awareness of an unperfected melting pot to create his self-defined style called Forward and Black. Other works from the African diaspora and nationally acclaimed African Americans, include Charly Palmer and David Anderson. Tours of the entire facility begin Friday, at 7:00pm, 8:00 pm and Saturday at 12:00pm and again at 2:00pm.
Community Art Collection
MATC is showcasing the second year of development of its Community Art Collection. MATC is breaking down barriers that stand between students and their academic and career success, including by providing a safe place where differences are valued and celebrated. The college is celebrating its culture and recognizing shared history and diversity in the display of art created by students, alumni and community members. A special event with MATC Social Justice Chair Dasha Kelly Hamilton will be held in the gallery space on the first floor of the Main Building along North 6th Street. Join us in celebrating this community connection.
The Warehouse Art Museum invites you to experience the unique studio practice of internationally acclaimed South African artist William Kentridge. Featuring prints, drawings, films, and sculpture in a variety of media from throughout the artist’s career, the exhibition focuses on how meaning is constructed through processes of making and interactive looking. A window into how Kentridge sees and thinks, this exhibition explores the limits and possibilities of art as a means of making sense of the world. Be prepared for challenging experiences and ideas.
