Milwaukee Art Museum -- Calendar

Opening: Paul Druecke: A Social Event Archive

Friday, May 12, 2017, 10 AM-5 PM

Explore the images in Paul Druecke: A Social Event Archive. In 1997, Milwaukee
artist Paul Druecke began going door to door asking local residents to contribute a snapshot of “a social occasion, public or private, current or historical” to his project A Social Event Archive. He acquired 731 photographs over ten years. With this exhibition, the archive is on view for the first time in a museum in honor of its twentieth anniversary. A Social Event Archive predates and predicts Instagram and Facebook and the blurring of private and public that such social media platforms allow.
