John Baldessari‘s Penguin sculpture

Urban Milwaukee Guided Tour

Wednesday, August 14th at 5:30 p.m.

Sculpture Milwaukee is back for another year, and so are Urban Milwaukee’s popular docent-led tours. View sculptures by emerging, mid-career and blue-chip artists, many that are internationally known, up close with the assistance of an expert guide.

The tours are led by our very knowledgeable guide, Jonas Karvelis. So, tour-goers will be able to learn what inspired the artists, how the pieces were made and explore possible interpretations of an art work’s meaning.

Sculpture Milwaukee opened June 7th, and we are hosting another tours every second Wednesday and last Saturday of the month. These tours will touch on most of the sculptures this year. Then we tour the Riverwalk to discuss some of Milwaukee’s most iconic and permanent works. This tour will conclude at the newly opened Saint Kate – The Arts Hotel for drinks and convivial conversation between tour-goers and our expert guide.

This approximately one-mile, 90-minute walking tour will start at John Baldessari‘s Penguin 2018 sculpture in front of the Northwestern Mutual Tower west to the Newaukee Night Market, visiting all the other works along the way.
