Free admission to the Milwaukee Art Museum on August 7
Public can see Kandinsky: A Retrospective for free

Milwaukee, Wis. – The Milwaukee Art Museum’s next monthly Target Free First Thursday is set for Thursday, August 7, 2014. Admission is free for all individuals, and includes access to Kandinsky: A Retrospective.

“We are thrilled to be able to offer this opportunity to our visitors,” said Museum director Daniel Keegan. “The Museum’s feature exhibition, Kandinsky, includes over 100 works by this modern master, many of which are on loan from the Centre Pompidou in Paris and have never been seen in the U.S. before.”

Also on view is Postcards from America: Milwaukee, a photography exhibition featuring the work of eleven Magnum photographers, Bruce Gilden, Jim Goldberg, Susan Meiselas, Martin Parr, Paolo Pellegrin, Mark Power, Alessandra Sanguinetti, Jacob Aue Sobol, Alec Soth, Zoe Strauss, and Donovan Wylie, who visited Wisconsin between August 2013 and April 2014. Interested in collaboration and experimentation, these exciting artists share their distinctive perspectives on subjects ranging from the State Fair and highway infrastructure to students in Black River Falls and women laborers.

Target Free First Thursdays provides all Museum visitors with free admission on the first Thursday of each month. The Museum is open Thursday, August 7  from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Future Target Free First Thursday dates include September 4, 2014.
