Throughout history we have utilized imagination and creativity as tools to move forward through art, science, literature, culture, agriculture and more. Through imagination we continue to form new ideas and worlds, continue to be resourceful, discover, connect and grow as humans. Through imagination we keep our creativity alive! Grand Avenue Club is excited to invite the public to join us for the opening of our upcoming show, “IMAGINE THAT!,” featuring local Milwaukee artists for a celebration of imagination and creativity. Opening program will begin at 5:30 including spoken word, music, discussions with featured artists and complimentary food and beverages.
Marc Chagall: Original Color Lithographs
The David Barnett Gallery will be displaying a collection of new acquisitions of original color lithographs by Marc Chagall. In his trademark vivid colors and style, Chagall brings to life characters from the Bible, the circus, and his own self-portraits.
Wild Personalities: Animal and Cityscape Paintings by Julia Taylor
In Gallery 1SW, new watercolor and ink paintings by Julia Taylor, Milwaukee artist and president of the Greater Milwaukee Committee.
This exhibition will highlight some of the most significant engineering marvels in Milwaukee’s history and will include photographs, documents, ephemera, and a number of the actual machines highlighted in the book of the same name by engineer Thomas Fehring, who also serves as guest curator. Nash automobiles, Merkel motorcycles, Evinrude outboards, Johnson Controls environmental systems, MasterLock locks, and Stereo-Realist cameras—these are but a few of the Magnificent Machines of Milwaukee, a one-of-a-kind exhibit filled with one-of-a-kind inventions.
Conventional display of art privileges level lines and generous spacing—all the better to spotlight the merits of individual works. Both Steven Foster’s Steve Lacy Series and Tomiko Jones’ A Place to Rest flout these principles of exhibition to reflect influence and collaboration, making the installation of the photographs as much a part of the work of art as the photographs themselves. Foster’s Steve Lacy Series draws its inspiration from the music of soprano saxophonist Steve Lacy (1934–2004).
Sculpture Milwaukee brings world class art to residents and visitors along Wisconsin Avenue, the economic and historic heart of our community. The exhibition runs as far east as Wisconsin Avenue goes and journeys west to the Wisconsin Center District at 6th Street. Sculpture Milwaukee is part of our community re-imagining how we want to bring inclusion and diversity to our 21st century city.
