Sarah Ball Allis Art Museum - Member Preview

January 26, 2023 | 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm

In 1945, Sarah Ball Allis passed away and gifted the home — and extensive art collection— she had built with her late husband, Charles, to Milwaukee leading to the creation of the Charles Allis Art Museum.

The "Sarah Ball Allis Art Museum" reimagines the Allis, highlighting Sarah and presenting its collection as if she was still collecting art today.

Featuring works by femme, women and nonbinary international and regional artists — including Michelle, Grabner, D. Denenge Duyst-Akpem, Molly Zuckerman-Hartung — the "Sarah Ball Allis Art Museum" is a celebration of art and feminism.

As members of the Charles Allis and Villa Terrace Art Museum, you are invited to an exclusive preview of this unique exhibition Jan. 26 from 5 to 6 p.m. before the general public opening.

Explore the Sarah Ball Allis with new eyes. Enjoy a complimentary drink as part of your membership. There will also be live music, complimentary hors d’oeuvres and opening remarks to celebrate the new exhibition and renaming of the museum.

Date: Thursday, Jan. 26, 2023
Time: 5 - 6 p.m.
Location: 1801 N. Prospect Ave. Milwaukee, WI 53202
