Bradley Gallery

Sam Francis: Master Printmaker marks the inaugural exhibition in the new Bradley Gallery, a 4,000-square-foot changing exhibition space located on the upper level of the Museum’s newly renovated Collection Galleries. The exhibition celebrates the 2009 gift to the Museum of more than five hundred prints from the Sam Francis Foundation, making the Milwaukee Art Museum the largest museum repository of the artist’s works on paper. For the exhibition, approximately fifty lithographs, etchings, aquatints, and screenprints will be featured, representing a cross section of the most significant print series of Francis’s career.
