Last week it was announced that Google had launched a Milwaukee experience on its virtual Arts & Culture platform which aims to make local culture more accessible to anyone, anywhere at any time. Milwaukee becomes the second city to receive this designation. The Milwaukee Google Arts & Culture page can be found by visiting or by downloading the Arts & Culture iOS or Android mobile app.

Common Council President Cavalier Johnson is excited for Milwaukee to receive this recognition. “Those of us who live here know just how amazing the arts and culture scene is in in Milwaukee, particularly during the summer months,” said Alderman Johnson. “While the COVID-19 pandemic has limited the amount of activity that can happen this summer, people from across the country and the world will be able to experience Milwaukee virtually and discover how great out city truly is.”

The page titled “Milwaukee: Fiercely Independent, Wholly Unexpected” includes more than 2,000 pieces of art and artifacts from local institutions. Visitors have the option to choose an adventure based on meeting creatives, taking a tour, exploring food, checking out art and much more.

Google Arts & Culture Milwaukee partners include: Milwaukee Art Museum, Radio Milwaukee, Visit Milwaukee, the Grohmann Museum at MSOE, the Harley-Davidson Museum, Imagine MKE, Sculpture Milwaukee, the Haggerty Museum at Marquette University, Milwaukee County Parks, Milwaukee Repertory Theater, Milwaukee Public Museum, Charles Allis Art Museum, Milwaukee Youth Symphony Orchestra, First Stage, the Chudnow Museum of Yesteryear, and the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design.
