Veterans receive free admission on November 10 and 11

Milwaukee, Wis. – In recognition of Veterans Day, the Milwaukee Art Museum is providing free admission for all veterans on Saturday, November 10, and Sunday, November 11.

“We are honored to be able to offer this opportunity to our Veterans,” said Museum director Daniel Keegan. “It is a small way to say thank you for their service and sacrifice.”

The free days are a continuation of other on-going programs directed at both active military and Veterans, including the Blue Star Museum Program, free admission on Memorial Day, and starting in 2013, the Purple Heart Pass, which will allow for free admission for Purple Heart recipients.

“The Museum is committed to serving all members of the community, we look forward to welcoming Veterans as they take advantage of the wonderful community spaces that the Museum offers,” said Keegan.

The Museum’s feature exhibition, Rembrandt, Van Dyck, Gainsborough: The Treasures of Kenwood House, London, is an exhibition of forty-eight masterpieces on tour from the Iveagh Bequest collection. Most of the paintings have never traveled to the States before, and many of them have rarely been seen outside London’s Kenwood House.

Celebrating its 125th anniversary in 2013, the Milwaukee Art Museum collection houses over 30,000 works, with strengths in 19th- and 20th-century American and European art, contemporary art, American decorative arts, and folk and self-taught art. The Museum campus is located on the shores of Lake Michigan and spans three buildings, including the Santiago Calatrava-designed Quadracci Pavilion and the Eero Saarinen-designed Milwaukee County War Memorial Center.
