Description [edit]
The Milwaukee Art Museum's collection comprises more than 20,000 works of art from ancient to contemporary and is housed in a trio of unique structures from Eero Saarinen's 1950s building through a David Kahler section added in the 1970s and the Santiago Calatrava-designed Quadracci Pavilion.

The museum houses 15th to 20th century European and American paintings, sculptures, prints, drawings, photographs, decorative arts, folk art, Haitian art and outsider art.

MAM's cafe also offers great lunches in a luminous setting with lake views.

Upcoming events

Dec. 5, 2019 - Dec. 5, 2019
Ex Fabula Presents: Living Library at MAM

Tell your true personal story inspired by the “Portrait of Milwaukee”exhibit at the Milwaukee Art Museum! Participate in a story circle which will help you prepare for a live storytelling event open to the public on December 5th. How this project works: On Thursday November 7, you’ll tour the MAM Portrait of Milwaukee exhibit, identify a photo that resonates with you, and then participate in a small group StoryCircle where you’ll share a personal story related to that image. There won’t be a full storytelling workshop, but there will be the chance to get feedback and polish your story a bit. On Thursday December 5, you’ll be part of the Living Library, along with other tellers. During your time slot (approx 1-2 hours long) you’ll sit or stand near the photo that inspired your story. Folks will have the chance to gather near you, and once there’s a group of maybe 4-6 listeners, you’ll share your 3-4 minute story. Informal – no mic. Why should you participate? It’s a cool opportunity to develop as a teller – and share a story with a small audience, but without having to get onstage. Story Circle Dates:Thursday, November 7th 1:30pm-4pm & 5:30pm-8pm Storytelling Event: Thursday, December 5th 1:30pm-4pm & 5:30pm-8pm Fill out this form if you’d like to participate in our “Living Library” project, and we’ll be in touch to confirm. Space is limited, so we’re trying to balance multiple factors as we select tellers.
