On The Issues: Museum and Arts Funding in WI

Please join the The Lubar Center on January 19 for “On the Issues: Museum and Arts Funding in Wisconsin.”

Milwaukee Museum Days kicks off by discussing the opportunities available in our area. Several guests will join Lubar Center Director Derek Mosley for a conversation about Milwaukee Museum Days and the state of funding for museums and the arts in Wisconsin. Panelists include Adam Braatz, executive director of Imagine MKE; Ellen Censky, president/CEO of the Milwaukee Public Museum; Clayborn Benson, executive director of Wisconsin Black Historical Society; Laurie Winters, executive director/CEO of the Museum of Wisconsin Art; Polly Morris, executive director of the Lynden Sculpture Garden; Marcela Garcia, executive director of the Walker’s Point Center for the Arts; and Rob Henken, president of the Wisconsin Policy Forum.

How can we bring more attention to the numerous museums in the city? What exciting things are happening during the ten-day festival and the coming months that the community should know? Wisconsin continues to be last in the nation in funding for the arts. Given the $10.8 billion impact, how can we stress the importance of supporting and growing the institutions that improve the quality of life in our state?

The program will begin promptly at 12:15 p.m. in Eckstein Hall.

The event is finished.
