  • Dance along to the beats of Madison’s fun and flawless favorite, DJ Urbane.
  • Be serenaded by the French accordion music of Stas, while learning the language of love—French pickup lines—from the experts at Alliance Francaise.
  • Be transported to the French countryside as you sip hand-selected varietals from Corvina Wine Company, expertly paired with specialty cheeses from the Milwaukee Art Museum Catering Team.
  • Express your amour to that special someone with vintage French notecard stamping with the East Town Association, celebrating the 35th anniversary of Bastille Days this summer.
  • Be introduced to the French pastry savoir-faire by tasting different cookies’ recipes from Michel et Augustin, the famous two kooky cookies French brand.
  • Explore the galleries with native Milwaukee artist Reginald Baylor, and learn about the pieces he selected for his adult coloring book. Francophiles will enjoy the French-focused Wild Card Tour given by Alliance Française Member and Milwaukee Art Museum Docent Caridad Bravo-Fernandez. Choose your own art adventure!
  • 414 Artist Jamie Bilgo Bruchman showcases her natural works of textile, printmaking, painting, drawing, and watercolor, incorporating flora and fauna.
