Winter 2013 Gallery Night

The TCD Recap

Our curated Storify recap, with entries from TCD staffers and fellow gallery hoppers, offers a cross-section of the evening's events.

By - Jan 20th, 2013 10:46 pm

This Friday and Saturday marked the first Gallery Night and Day of 2013, with Milwaukee art lovers flocking from gallery to gallery. TCD staffers joined the crowd, traveling to exhibitions in the Third Ward, Downtown, Walker’s Point, Bay View, the East Side and more, and cataloging what we saw using social media and our #tcdart hashtag.

The results are below, in a Storify recap of the evening’s events. Of course, we weren’t the only ones out there, so we’ve curated a number of other tweets and posts from our fellow gallerygoers. If you’ve got more photos yet to reveal, post them to Facebook or Twitter and tag ThirdCoast Digest (@tcdigest) so we can turn our eye on them – otherwise, enjoy the recap, and hopefully we’ll see you out with us in the spring!
