Milwaukee is full of talented artists and inspiring galleries and Gallery Night events are the perfect way to immerse yourself into the lively scene.

The next Gallery Night MKE will take place on Friday, April 22 and Saturday, April 23 in Downtown Milwaukee and its surrounding neighborhoods including the Historic Third Ward, East Town, Walker’s Point and the Menomonee River Valley.

This free, two-day art event offers visitors the opportunity to purchase original and local art – from photography to sculpture to drawing to  painting and everything in between – while visiting Milwaukee’s most dynamic neighborhoods.

The easiest way to plan a Gallery Night MKE experience is to download the “Gallery Night MKE” app in the Apple App or Google Play stores. The app features up-to-date listings, interactive features including an easy to navigate map, information on parking, restaurants and hotels.

Street parking in Downtown Milwaukee is free after 6 p.m. Otherwise, consider renting a Bublr bike or hopping on The Hop streetcar to travel between venues.

Go here for more information or to see a full listing of participating galleries. Hard copy brochures will also be available at all of the venues.
