Burke Properties’ President Visits MAM Renovation Site
Wendy Slocum, President, toured the renovation of the Milwaukee Art Museum and can’t wait for the opening of the addition which will include the reinstallation of the Museum’s collection scheduled for November of 2015.
Led by Dan Keegan, Art Museum Director, and Brady Roberts, Chief Curator, the tour included a peek behind the scenes to the redesigned galleries that will amaze and delight. The oculus at the new lakeside entrance, the cantilevered sculpture garden and the designers’ nod to the original building by incorporating some original features we will all recognize are some of the highlights. That, and 20,000 feet of additional gallery space! Milwaukee: get ready!!!
Wendy is the current President of the Collectors’ Corner, a support group of the museum founded in 1948, whose purpose is to promote interest in the decorative arts and to develop activities, which will be of benefit to the Milwaukee Art Museum.
