Milwaukee, Wis. – July 5, 2019 – On Sunday, July 21, families are invited to paint, draw, build, and learn directly from celebrated contemporary artist Jamie Nares at Kohl’s Art Generation Family Sundays: Brush with Greatness at the Milwaukee Art Museum.

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 July 21, visitors of all ages can make art inspired by the work in the exhibition Nares: Moves. Art making stations will be set up throughout the Museum, where families can paint giant brushstrokes, assemble their own brushes, make experimental drawings, and create texture rubbings of found objects. Families can also take a tour through the feature exhibition with the free accompanying Family Guide.

Wild Space Dance Company will perform at 11 a.m. in Windhover Hall, and dancers from TBEY Arts Center will visit with guests from 11 a.m.–3 p.m., before their 3 p.m. performance.  SaintA will be available from 11 a.m.–3 p.m. to share what services they offer to help kids and families. In the Kohl’s Art Generation Studio, families can appreciate art made by the children of Penfield Montessori Academy and Children’s Center.

The cost to attend Kohl’s Art Generation Family Sundays: Brush with Greatness is included in Museum admission. Thanks to Kohl’s Cares, Museum attendance is always free for kids ages 12 and under.
