Summer of China: Milwaukee Art Museum Special Exhibitions 2011

We really lucked out scoring this tremendous exhibition.  It seems that the Chinese contingent here to inspect the city and the museum absolutely fell in love with the museum/war memorial center's great architecture.  The Summer of China is actually five separate exhibitions but paid admission (or membership admission) allows you to roam at leisure and see as little or as much as you wish.  In addition, there will be a series of special lectures throughout the time of the exhibition.


Summer of CHINA

Milwaukee Art Museum

This summer, enter a realm of majesty and mystery. Experience three thousand years of Chinese art and culture in five exhibitions at the Milwaukee Art Museum. This ambitious series, titled the Summer of CHINA, is part of a year-long celebration honoring the ten-year anniversary of the Museum’s Santiago Calatrava–designed Quadracci Pavilion.

A broad range of CHINA-related programs will accompany the exhibitions throughout the summer, including children’s activities, adult lectures on Chinese art and culture, and a Chinese-themed MAM After Dark. In July, the Museum partners with the Milwaukee Chinese Cultural Community Center to unveil the city’s first Chinese Cultural Fest. Everyone is invited to join the Museum in learning about and celebrating this very old—yet very modern—civilization.

Here's the deal - if you become an individual member for a mere $60 a year, you get free admission to ALL exhibitions and ALL lectures and special showings, as many times as you want.  In addition, if you have children and grandchildren under the age of 17, they get in free if accompanied by you.

I was thinking of going down on Monday (July 4th), which is a holiday here and the office is closed but the MAM is open. Weather is supposed to be good and, yes, will definitely take the camera should I go!
