New this month: Check out American Furniture / Googled and learn more about the digitally-driven exhibition during a Gallery Talk with curator Mel Buchanan. At 6:30 and 9:00 PM screen the critically acclaimed documentary Handmade Nation, by local filmaker and indie-craft champion Faythe Levine.

, all outside on the Museum’s breathtaking Terrace (weather permitting). Details and program info below.


Ogle at this google-worthy exhibition, where unconventional digital labels share resource materials from the Internet on the Victorian-era furniture on view. Gallery Talk with curator Mel Buchanan at 6 PM.

Make your own wallets, handbags, and more at an expanded version of the ever-popular DIY Studio from 5 to 11 PM, then take a break for beer tasting from 6 to 8 PM. Plus, enjoy snacks compliments of the Museum’s Café Calatrava, 6 to 9 PM, and refreshments at the Cash Bar from 5 to close.

Be there as Jordan Lee (DJ Madhatter) of 88Nine Radio Milwaukee heats up the proverbial wax while you cut the proverbial rug inside from 5 to 11 PM, and don’t miss The Championship outside from 8 to 10 PM.
