Families can enjoy hands-on art activities and performances as they see working artists in action.
Milwaukee, Wis. – April 16, 2019 – On Sunday, May 5, the Milwaukee Art Museum invites families to meet local artists and create their own art projects at Kohl’s Art Generation Family Sundays: Wisconsin Artists.
Five times a year, the Milwaukee Art Museum is filled with kids, families, and art making, with projects and presentations in multiple spaces in the Museum, including the iconic Windhover Hall, as part of Kohl’s Art Generation Family Sundays.
From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on May 5, visitors can explore the work of Cedarburg-based artist Charles Radtke in the exhibition Contained, and then sculpt their own furniture inspired by Radtke. Aspiring artists of all ages can also let the works by Wisconsin artists including Georgia O’Keeffe, Reggie Baylor, and Michelle Grabner, in the Museum’s Collection spark their creativity, before painting their own masterpiece.
The Lloyd Barbee Montessori Choir will sing at 1:30 p.m. in Windhover Hall followed by The Milwaukee Children’s Choir from 2:30 to 3 p.m. Visitors can view art by the students of Cedar Hills Elementary and Lloyd Barbee Montessori in the Kohl’s Art Generation Studio.
