Color Rush: 75 Years of Color Photography in America
Milwaukee Art Museum
700 N. Art Museum Drive

This comprehensive exhibit is the big opening of the week: an extensive survey of the evolution of color photography from its development at the turn of the century to its widespread adoption by the early ’80s. Whether you’re a photography expert or aficionado, or just the regular, everyday art-lover, you’ll find something great here. The show runs through May 19, 2013.


Nut Factory Open House 2013 
3720 N. Fratney St.

This once-yearly open house of artists’ studios features paintings, photography, video, installations and more. The name comes from its original purpose – a factory that processed nuts – not a reference to the artists working, if that’s what you’re thinking. The open house runs 7 to 11 p.m.


James Steeno’s Similtudes
Anaba Tea Room, Garden Room, lower level
2107 E. Capitol Drive, Shorewood

This weekend is also your last chance to drop into Anaba for Similitudes, an exhibition by James Steeno consisting of various watercolors, drawings and paper collages made of upcycled, discarded printer papers and junk mail. Steeno’s exhibit will be replaced by On the Horizon, a series of oil landscapes by Beki Borman. Steeno’s exhibition will close at 3 p.m. Sunday.
