Animation: Art Goes to the Movies
The Kohl’s Art Generation Gallery is open during Museum hours.
Discover how paintings, sculptures, and other works of art have played a role in animated movies such as Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, DreamWorks’ Madagascar, Universal Studios’ The Tales of Despereaux, and more. Learn how animation artists develop their characters and get them to move, and try your hand at stop motion animation.
Museum Inside Out
Explore what happens behind the scenes at the Museum! X-ray a painting, change the frames on works of art, ask the Museum curators about their work, the exhibitions—and more. This interactive experience combines high-tech activities with low-tech ones for an inside look at the way museums work.
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, and the projects change weekly; find your inspiration from the artworks in the Museum’s Collection and 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!
