Northwestern Mutual Life presents

Be seen where cutting-edge fashions from the best and the brightest local designers take center stage. RunUp to the Runway returns to the Museum with its full-production runway show for its fourth year, kicking off MAM After Dark.

Discover up-and-coming Mount Mary College senior fashion students, whose innovative designs warm up the catwalk, beginning at 8:30 p.m. The award-winning couture from the RunUp to the Runway Design Competition, together with the collections of several premier Milwaukee Boutiques (Valentina, Molloy’s, Faye's, Aala/Reed, Boutique Vieux et Nouveau, SHOP), take the stage at 10 p.m. What will you be wearing this fall?

Freshen your look with complimentary beauty services provided by some of the area’s top salons and spas (Beauty, Neroli, Erik of Norway, Men's Room, Blush), experience what it’s like to physically engage with the interactive installation art in Act/React, and enjoy a cocktail under the wings with a thousand of your closest friends. Programming continues well into the night for the post-Gallery Night crowd, with a beer tasting courtesy of Beer Capitol Distributing, hors d’oeuvres from Café Calatrava, and music from Tarik Moody of 88Nine Radio Milwaukee.
Shake it up, every third Friday of the month, with MAM
After Dark, the new, monthly art happening that allows you to cast yourself in a whole new light.

RunUp to the Runway is sponsored by the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra League’s Evening Associates and the Milwaukee Art Museum. Ticket proceeds benefit both the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra and the Milwaukee Art Museum.
