Gallerie M is a joint project between MIAD and InterContinental Milwaukee.

Gallerie M gets a new curator

Danielle Rosen, a senior at Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design (MIAD) majoring in Integrated Studio Arts, has been named the new curator of Gallerie M, an art space in the lobby of InterContinental Milwaukee hotel Downtown.

The appointment follows the creation of a new partnership between the hotel and the Third Ward art school. As part of the deal, MIAD can name a student to curate the space and InterContinental Milwaukee makes an annual donation to the MIAD Scholarship Fund.

Rosen, whose first exhibit, "Hyperbole," opens at Gallerie M this week, brings three years' experience working in two MIAD galleries.

"My curatorial goals for this particular space are to show a range of work that will be relevant to the broad audience who typically enter Gallerie M, but will still challenge viewers," says Rosen.

"I feel the works should be active in terms of how they engage viewers and foster dialogue, criticism, understanding and questioning -- not just function as expensive decorative items."

"Hyperbole" features works by Pedro Velez and Katie Brandt. An opening reception takes place Friday, Feb. 25, from 6 to 9 p.m., and will include complimentary champagne, light appetizers and a cash bar.

"We're excited to have Danielle join our team," says Tim Smith, general manager of InterContinental Milwaukee. "We offer many programs and events that support the local arts community and are thrilled to add MIAD as one of our partners in that effort."

Rosen's tenure at Gallerie M will likely be brief. She graduates in May and has applied to a number of graduate schools across the country.
