Culture Starters: Emerging from Quarantine

Culture Starters includes work that straddles two distinct binaries that emerged from the pandemic: 1) a shift in creative practice to include emerging technologies and the digital world or 2) a return to analog/tactile processes, the handmade, and homesteading. Within these methods of making, the exhibition features creatives that conceptually explores practices rooted to culture— represented here as both a noun (way of, or reflection of, life) and a verb (to cultivate or grow).

On View: 3/28 – 6/22

Reception on Thursday, April 4 from 5-8pm



MIAD Gallery at The Ave provides a supportive space for Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design students, alumni, faculty, and staff to show and sell their work in the heart of downtown Milwaukee. The gallery will hold both exhibitions and a rotating inventory of artwork, crafted goods, and more.
