During the inaugural Milwaukee Museum Week, Jan. 21-27. nearly a dozen and a half area museums are offering special deals, others extended hours, still others special programming. Marquette's Haggerty Museum is offering a rare behind the scenes tour.
There's an art explosion on the Marquette campus where the Haggerty Museum of Art recently opened four exhibitions that all run through May 19. On a recent visit, I most enjoyed Milwaukee photographer Kevin Miyazaki's "Perimeter," which is in a small gallery just inside the entrance.
After serving as interim associate curator at Marquette University's Haggerty Museum of Art since July, Emilia P. Layden was recently named to the position permanently. We caught up with the New Orleans native to see how she enjoys living in Milwaukee and her plans for upcoming shows at the museum.
