Due to the pandemic, The Historic Third Ward Association presents the first-ever virtual edition of summer Gallery Night MKE. The online event will take place on the new Gallery Night MKE app and website as well as on social media from Monday, July 13 through Saturday, July 18.

"Gallery Night MKE has always been about making art accessible and helping people to feel comfortable going into galleries," said Jim Plaisted, Executive Director of the Historic Third Ward Association.

Many artists and galleries will be taking appointments and offering curbside pick-up for purchases. In addition, some galleries will be open for limited public hours Friday and Saturday. Check out specific gallery listings for information.

"With a virtual event, we meet people where they are - online - so they can decide the best way to proceed within their own comfort levels while still showcasing Milwaukee’s incredible art and artists during this unusual time," says Plaisted.

Molly Snyder grew up on Milwaukee's East Side and today, she lives in the Walker's Point neighborhood with her partner and two sons.

As a full time senior writer, editorial manager and self-described experience junkie, Molly has written thousands of articles about Milwaukee (and a few about New Orleans, Detroit, Indianapolis, Boston and various vacation spots in Wisconsin) that range in subject from where to get the best cup of coffee to an in-depth profile on the survivors of the iconic Norman apartment building that burned down in the '90s.

She also once got a colonic just to report on it, but that's enough on that. 

Always told she had a "radio voice," Molly found herself as a regular contributor on FM102, 97WMYX and 1130WISN with her childhood radio favorite, Gene Mueller.

Molly's poetry, essays and articles appeared in many publications including USA Today, The Writer, The Sun Magazine and more. She has a collection of poetry, "Topless," and is slowly writing a memoir.

In 2009, Molly won a Milwaukee Press Club Award. She served as the Narrator / writer-in-residence at the Pfister Hotel from 2013-2014. She is also a story slam-winning storyteller who has performed with The Moth, Ex Fabula and Risk!

When she's not writing, interviewing or mom-ing, Molly teaches tarot card classes, gardens, sits in bars drinking Miller products and dreams of being in a punk band again.
