Vote for a Milwaukee artist

I learned two things about The Pfister this morning: that it houses more Victorian art than any other hotel in the world and that it has an artist in residence program. In fact, it has had one for two years, and now, you can vote for one of six local artists to win the honor for the third year.

The finalists include local artists Shelby Keefe, Stephen P. Ohlrich, Jeremy Plunkett, Kate Pfeiffer, Anthony Suminski and Jim Zwadlo.

To vote, just log onto the Pfister’s Web site or you can do it via Twitter (#ArtistInResidence) or by texting 22333. The voting closes on Saturday, Feb. 13 and the selection committee will announce the winner soon after.

In the meantime, check out the work of these six finalists at Gallerie M, inside InterContinental Milwaukee, during January Gallery Night on Friday, Jan. 21.

The Pfister’s artist-in-residence program features a working art studio and gallery that's open to hotel guests and visitors. The program encourages the public to interact with the artist and experience the art-making process for themselves.
