Delight, Inspire, Educate: The Allis Collection as Catalyst

May 12, 2019 – June 30, 2021

During 2019, we are presenting various aspects of the Allis art collection, from paintings and sculptures to decorative arts objects and print materials. In our Foyer Gallery, we consider the act of collecting today and how the objects we live with can inspire creative connections and passions in our lives. On our second floor, Sarah’s bedroom highlights collection selections that encourage observations, wonder, and examination. The North gallery offers an opportunity for visitors to propose both questions and answers about the house and collection. Alongside, the Milwaukee Women’s Art Library (MWAL), slated to open in 2020, will make its start in our South gallery. This year the library’s collection will accumulate as we gather materials from local non-binary and women artists whose stories may not otherwise be archived and preserved.

Exhibition runs Thursday, May 9 to Sunday, April 12, 2020

Exhibition and Mansion tours August 3 and 7, September 4 and 7. Tours begin promptly at 1:00 p.m.
