I’ve mentioned before how much Josh loves going to the Art Museum. You may have heard that it is undergoing a facelift at the moment, but don’t let that keep you away during spring break – even though the majority of the museum is closed for renovations, there is still lots to do there. We were lucky enough to have been invited to check it out by the MAM and had lots of fun kicking off vacation week.
First, a word of warning: there is LOTS of construction going on in the area. Check out the DOT website and see if your route might be affected. We were coming down from the north and the exit we usually take was closed. We wound up taking about a 4 mile detour. Oops.
The Milwaukee Art Museum currently has the Inspiring Beauty exhibit running through May 3rd. This exhibit celebrates 50 years of Ebony Fashion Fair and includes one of a kind ensembles by Christian Dior, Patrick Kelly, Vivienne Westwood and others.
The Kohl’s Generation Art Studio has moved to the first floor, just to the right after entering the museum and is open every day during the construction (except Mondays when the whole museum is closed – at least until Memorial Day). Josh and I popped in and attempted to design our own outfits. He created skater wear while mine was an homage to our upcoming trip to Disney and is supposed to be Elsa inspired.
Family Sunday is free in May and will take place in Sunday, May 17th from 10 am to 4 pm. This month’s theme is “Play on Words” and is a great way to connect with your children through hands-on art acticities. You can also take advantage of the ArtPack station which has moved during construction and is located just outside of the Kohl’s Generation Art Stdio in the main lobby.
Thanks again to the Museum for hosting Josh and I for a fun morning!
