Illusions: Near and Far

The Kohl’s Art Generation Gallery is open during Museum hours.

Final weeks! Open through October 19, 2014.

Explore how artists make a flat surface appear as if you could step right into it in Illusions: Near and Far, the latest interactive gallery installation. Try some of the tricks artists have invented such as using size, overlapping, sharp and fuzzy edges, and more to create the illusion of space. Then “build” your own monumental work of art!

Kohl’s Art Generation Open Studio

The studio is the place to engage in ever-changing hands-on art projects and create something all your own to take home. Each month features a different theme; find your inspiration from the artworks in the Museum’s Collection and special exhibitions!

The Studio is open Saturdays and Sundays, 10 AM-4 PM so feel free to drop in for a few minutes or spend the day at the Milwaukee Art Museum!

Monthly Inspiration

Each month our weekend programs take on a new theme. Here is a quick list to get you inspired about the months ahead!

  • September: Sculpture Workshop
    Create art in 3-D all month long—taking inspiration from sculptures in the Museum’s Collection! Explore the art of mid-twentieth-century sculptors, and work with elements of line, plane, texture, and more. Experiment with materials such as wire, cardboard, and clay. Take your artwork home, or “plant” it in a mini sculpture garden!
  • October: Amazing Architecture
  • November: Painted Stories
  • December: Near and Dear
