JUNE 2014 | BRAVAMAGAZINE.COM 15 THE LATEST TAKE NOTE MOXIE ARTS PREVIEW Take your art-loving self on a road trip to enjoy the Milwaukee arts scene. First stop: the Milwaukee Art Museum's exhibition of works by Wassily Kandinsky, one of the great pioneers of abstraction. The museum's retrospective includes work from the collection of Paris' Centre Pompidou, as well as MAM's own collection of Kandinsky pieces from the Mrs. Harry Lynde Bradley Collection. On exhibit through Sept. 1. After sating your eye on Kandinsky, pop over to the nearby Third Ward neighborhood for sustenance, then visit one of its dozens of galleries and boutiques that prominently feature local artists. Don't miss the Tory Folliard Gallery to see the exhibition, "Meet Me at the Edge of the World," by Madison artist Trent Miller. Miller's work is not completely abstract, nor is it representational, but it's the perfect complement to bring home the Kandinsky exhibition. Through July 3. From there, head around the corner to what's been called "the nexus" of the Milwaukee arts scene. The Marshall building houses many galleries, including the must-see Portrait Society and Katie Gingrass Art Gallery, which consistently exhibit noteworthy Wisconsin artists. –Karin Wolf, program administrator for the Madison Arts Commission For more events, see GO+DO p. 70.
