Milwaukee Art Museum

The Milwaukee Art Museum has selected Boelter + Lincoln Marketing Communications to develop the museum’s new rebranding campaign in conjunction with its major restoration and renovation project, which began earlier this fall. The Collection Galleries in the museum’s Saarinen and Kahler buildings have been taken off view for the next year for extensive restoration work. The museum, however, remains open and active. The collections will be re-installed in the fall of 2015, and the museum will unveil easier wayfinding, a new lakeside entrance, redesigned galleries, and restrooms on every floor. MAM’s Plan for the Future is a comprehensive public campaign to restore the War Memorial and Kahler buildings and reinstall the museum’s galleries. It is part of the museum’s $15 million commitment to the $25 million project in partnership with Milwaukee County. The marketing campaign will launch shortly before the Collection Galleries and the new east entrance open, and will include print, broadcast and digital media. The museum campus currently includes the War Memorial Center (1957) designed by Finnish-American architect Eero Saarinen; the Kahler Building (1975) by Milwaukee-based architect David Kahler; and the Quadracci Pavilion (2001) by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava. With the renovation, the museum’s gallery space will increase by 10,000 square feet.
