HOLIDAY SHOPPING MADE EASY AT MILWAUKEE ART MUSEUM
Special Members-only events, free shipping available for stress-free shopping

Milwaukee, Wis. – With the holiday season starting earlier each year, the Milwaukee Art Museum Store has made holiday shopping as easy and convenient as possible, focusing on price points for all budgets, an eye for the eco-friendly, and a tilt toward the creative.

“The Milwaukee Art Museum Store is the perfect place for holiday shopping,” said Karen McNeely, director of retail operations. “It’s convenient, unique, and there’s literally something for everyone, from the seasoned art collector to the design aficionado to the jewelry fan to kids.”

“The Museum Store is located inside the Calatrava-designed addition to the Museum and is free to access; you do not have to pay Museum admission to come shopping,” said McNeely. “There’s convenient, underground parking and unique items that you will not find in any other place in town.”

Among the items McNeely says are most popular with shoppers are household items and personal items. There’s also a large selection of children’s toys and educational options.

Also available are specially-themed items for the Museum’s current feature exhibition, Impressionism: Masterworks on Paper, on view through January 8, 2012. The Museum has a second retail store located inside the exhibition hall with items related to the show, including books, clothes, hats, jewelry, and home décor.
