Sculpture Milwaukee is back for another year, and so are Urban Milwaukee’s docent-led tours. See the 21 world-class sculptures up close with the assistance of an expert guide.

The guided tour includes not only the chance to see the art up-close and in-person, but to learn what inspired the artists, how the pieces were made and to explore possible interpretations of the work’s meaning. You’ll also be able to ask questions of our very knowledgeable guide, Jonas Karvelis.

We’re hosting our next tour on August 16th starting at 5:30 p.m. The approximately one-mile, 90-minute walking tour will run from Kiki Smith‘s Alice (Seer II) sculpture in the gardens in front of the Northwestern Mutual Tower west to the Milwaukee County Historical Society’s Brew City MKE pop-up bar. Along the way, you’ll see striking pieces like Robert Indiana‘s iconic LOVE sculpture.
