Spring Gallery Night in Images

By - Apr 19th, 2010 04:00 am

Is it possible to hit a dozen locations in few hours on Gallery Night? Yes, if you park in the Third Ward and stay within the neighborhood. While this is a good time, it’s too safe. Some of the best and most daring art this past Friday was far flung.

In my quest to document the night, I hit 8 spots in 4 hours. This doesn’t include my return trip to the old Pabst brewery complex where Sweeping  the Pool of Light was ironically going on in three locations. At 6 p.m., the setting sun coming through epic newly-installed windows was kind of ruining the specially lit or projected pieces for Parachute Project artists. A night-time return found good crowds criss-crossing Zilber Park and back again. In the end, they all gathered in possibly the best place in Milwaukee you haven’t heard of yet. But I save that story for Wednesday’s Deep-Fried Romantic column.

Also seen this Friday night: Troy Freund’s Story School photography project, Dan Naumann displaying ironworks at Villa Terrace, Forward at Charles Allis, the mega CoPA exhibit in the P.H. Dye building, Streetza Pizza “Artonatruck2” outside Lela, the scene on Chicago Ave., Soup’s On and Motionary Comics at Moct. Click here for groovy slideshow version.
