The Patrick and Beatrice Haggerty Museum of Art will close from June 15 through July 15 for maintenance. The museum gift shop will also be closed. To access the museum’s second floor administrative suite, guests may use the stairs near the main entrance. The office staff will remain on duty and can be reached by phone or e-mail.
The wood floors of the museum will be resurfaced to restore their original appearance. They were created by local artisan Allan F. Pyne, well known for his craftsmanship and elaborate patterns. His nationally recognized work can also be seen at the historic Milwaukee Grain Exchange Room. In addition to the floor revitalization, the museum will undergo a deep cleaning and will be repainted to the ceiling, refreshing the overall feeling of the space with a contemporary palette. The skylights of the museum were originally illuminated by fluorescent lights that will be checked for mechanical soundness and replaced as needed, bringing back the original architectural intent.
The museum is hosting a Current Tendencies exhibition featuring 10 Wisconsin artists through Sunday, June 14. The exhibition features works in diverse mediums by emerging, mid-career and established Wisconsin artists — Jennifer Angus, Peter Bardy, Anne Kingsbury, Colin Matthes, Shana McCaw, Brent Budsberg, T.L. Solien, Sonja Thomsen, George Williams Jr., and Xiaohong Zhang.
