When alluding to television sitcom history, Wisconsin’s largest city has come a long way from, “Schlemeel, schlemazel, hasenfeffer incorporated.” Images of rundown breweries and a depressed downtown have been replaced with exciting art communities, trendy restaurants, and a vibrant nightlife. The city has undergone a veritable cultural renaissance and the results are enough to excite any prospective art student. Of the many art communities thriving throughout the city, the historic Third Ward and Lakefront district draw the most visitors as the area overlooks Lake Michigan, and is home to the Milwaukee Museum of Art, the Lincoln Center for the Arts, and Marquette’s Haggerty Museum of Art. In fact, the Third Ward has the highest concentration of galleries and hosts such popular events as “Red Lite Nite in the Ward”, “Gallery Night and Day”, and Lakefest. Another area of the city that features a variety of art attractions is the Riverwest / East Side neighborhood, which is home to such notable galleries as Jody Monroe Gallery, Studio 1661, and Lakeshore Gallery, as well as the University of Wisconsin’s Institute of Visual Arts (Inova). This awakened interest in reviving the arts in Milwaukee is greatly supported by the city’s residents; support that is most evident in the community funding of the Milwaukee Museum of Art’s newest expansion. This $100 million project was named by Time Magazine as the greatest architectural achievement of 2001 and stands as the clearest illustration of how Milwaukee truly is “America’s best kept secret”.
