Remarks at 6:15 PM | East End

Celebrate the opening of Paul Druecke: A Social Event Archive, 1997–2007. 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.
