Later this month, Gallery Night MKE returns with nearly two dozen venues exhibiting art throughout Downtown Milwaukee neighborhoods including the Historic Third Ward, East Town, Walker’s Point and the Menomonee River Valley.

Gallery Night MKE takes place Friday, Jan. 21 and Saturday, Jan. 22. This free, two-day art event offers the opportunity to purchase original and local art while gallery hopping through Milwaukee’s most dynamic neighborhoods.

For more information about Gallery Night MKE, go here.

The easiest way to plan out 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. The Hop streetcar will also help navigate guests to event venues.

COVID protocols are determined by each venue and listed on the Gallery Night MKE app and website. If no protocol is listed, please be sure to bring a mask and maintain social distance.
