SHARP Literacy Art Education Quilt Exhibit
Hundreds of first and second grade students from 10 Milwaukee-area schools participated in the study and creation of artwork included in the SHARP Literacy “Bee Quilt." Drawn imagery from 600 creative young students is incorporated into the four-piece quilt, which focuses on the seasonal nature of the “Life Cycle of Growing Things and Pollination,” and is based on both first grade science curriculum and SHARP Literacy’s We Love To Learn Book "A Busy Bee: The Story of Bella the Honey Bee."

Come join the MAM After Dark: Block Party! See a dance performance in the Museum’s fountains, welcome Hip-Hop Congress, start the conversation on the 30 Americans exhibition, celebrate into the night with DJ Jank, join local director Brad Pruitt for a screening and a spoken word, and more.
30 Americans is a dynamic exploration of contemporary American art. Paintings, sculptures, installations, photographs, video, and more made by African American artists since 1970 raise questions of what it means to be a contemporary artist and an African American today. Whether addressing issues of race, gender, sexuality, politics, or history—or seemingly remaining silent about them—these works offer powerful interpretations of cultural identity and artistic legacy.
