Our City, City of Art – 3 Things to do this Weekend in Milwaukee

Milwaukee, as many of you know, has a burgeoning Art Community made up of numerous established artists and galleries and a plethora of up-and-coming artists and galleries that are making themselves known.  This great, flourishing art  community really comes to life four times a year during Milwaukee Gallery Night, and this weekend just happens to be the new one!

“The Art of Marcus” Exhibit

Friday, October 19th until 11pm – The Rouge Ballroom at The Pfister

We’re proud to have to associates from our hotel participating in this exciting event, Joshua Hunt (pictured above) and Kevin Maille (pictured below).

This one we’re particularly proud of.  The Pfister’s current Artist in Residence, Timothy Westbrook has curated a special exhibit to highlight the artistic talents of associates in all three of Marcus Hotels Milwaukee properties (The InterContinental, The Pfister & The Hilton City Center).

The exhibit runs all day on Friday, October 19th until 11pm at 10pm 5 awards will be given to participating artists for Best-in-Show & Viewers choice.  Best of all, the Overall Best-in-Show winner will receive a showing at Gallerie M here in the InterContinental early next year for a month.

La Boheme

Thursday, October 18th – Sunday, October 21st – Marcus Center for the Performing Arts

Turning a world-famous opera into a world-premiere ballet is a challenge only master storyteller Michael Pink could take on. What was once conveyed through voice and words is now dependent solely on movement. The epic saga of Rodolfo and Mimi falling in and out of love amid poverty is as rapturous and aching as ever. But now, through the majesty of dance, it has become so much more.
