Gallery Night & Day, Milwaukee« Back to Events
Happening quarterly, Gallery Night & Day is one of the premier art events in Milwaukee. It’s the “Ultimate Art Weekend,” with over 50 venues throughout the Third Ward and Downtown that serve as showcases for viewing art from paintings to sculptures to other creative outlets. Bars and restaurants stay open later than usual Friday night, while Saturday is a prime time to continue the gallery gallivanting while also enjoying the area’s unique and eclectic selection of shops.
Along with art galleries, Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward is filled with boutique shops like Lela, Bangles & Bags, Shoo, Stephanie Horne Boutique, MILWORKS, Lizzibeth, Drybar, Too Much Metal, MODA3, and Red Elephant Chocolates. You’ll also find Anthropologie, Designs Within Reach, Restoration Hardware, The Home Market, Francesca’s, Mod Gen, Pendleton Woolen Mills, Retique, Warby Parker, Lululemon Athletica, Royal Enfield, and even the new Shake Shack. The Milwaukee Public Market draws visitors from all over and offers takeaway and ready-to-eat food, drinks, and sundries in one dynamic setting.
This quarter, Gallery Night runs Friday and Saturday, January 19-20, 2018. Activities begin late afternoon Friday and run through Saturday afternoon. I-43/94, I-794, U.S. 18, and Highway 32 are all amidst where it takes place; Highways 38, 59, and 145 get you close! The city has signs directing you to the Third Ward from the Marquette Interchange.
NEW THIS YEAR, you’ll find Ice Bars around St. Paul Fish Company at the Public Market and the Wicked Hop and Cafe Benelux across the street on Broadway. These add to the fun, with LEDs lighting up the ice blocks and bringing even more fun to the sidewalks during the coldest time of the year.
Full details and venue listings are available on their website. You’ll find the latest listings of shops, galleries, bars, restaurants, and more – things develop and change quickly in the Third Ward!
