In 2007, Sculpture Milwaukee was a vision. Steve Marcus, chairman of the Marcus Corporation, wanted to revitalize W. Wisconsin Avenue in downtown Milwaukee and make blue-chip sculpture accessible to visitors and residents of the city. After ten years, more than one hundred volunteers, nearly 20 sponsors, and many cranes, bolts and docent tours later, Sculpture Milwaukee is now an annual beacon that attracts spectators and art lovers to the city center. Sculpture Milwaukee takes a world-class art gallery experience and turns it inside out. Works from master artists are set against an urban, downtown setting. No lines, no admission, and no silence. This sculpture experience is outside, galvanizing the hustle and bustle of downtown Milwaukee.
