-Families will create art for collage to hang at new Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin clinic in Kenosha-

Milwaukee, Wis. – January 9, 2019 – Families who visit the Kohl’s Art Generation Studio during the month of January will have the opportunity to paint, draw, and make prints inspired by art in the Museum’s Collection to become part of a giant collage. The resulting community-created art piece will be installed at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin’s new Kenosha clinic.

“We’re inviting all kids to help create this unique artwork for the children and families at Children’s Hospital to enjoy,” said Brigid Globensky, Barbara Brown Lee Senior Director of Education and Programs for the Milwaukee Art Museum. “Families and children making art for families and children: it’s a wonderful way to connect the community through art, but it’s also a great platform for grownups to discuss the importance of giving and community with their kids.”

Families may contribute to this community project every day the Museum is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (until 7 p.m. on Thursdays) through the end of January.  The completed collage will be presented to Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin in February.

The Kohl’s Art Generation Studio is open every day the Milwaukee Art Museum is open, and the cost for programming is included with museum admission. Thanks to Kohl’s Cares, museum admission is always free for kids age 12 and under. For more information, visit mam.org/artgeneration.
