Urban Milwaukee Guided Tour
Sculpture Milwaukee is wrapping up after a summer filled with amazing art, 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 before they’re gone.
The tours are led by our art-savvy guide, Jonas Karvelis. 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 our final tour on Sunday, October 27th at 12:30 p.m. This is a special day, as it is the final day of Sculpture Milwaukee 2019. Spend an autumn day enjoying the city, and the beautiful art to be found Downtown. This tour 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 and runs west through many of the works on Wisconsin Ave., before zipping over to Saint Kates – The Arts Hotel.
Tour tickets cost $12/each for the general public. But Urban Milwaukee members pay only $6 per ticket after signing into their account.
