Milwaukee Artists in the 1930s

Join MPL on Saturday, October 9th at 2:00 p.m. in the Krug Rare Books Room for Paper, Pencil, Portrait: Milwaukee Artists in the 1930s, the latest program in the Richard E. and Lucile Krug Rare Books Room Educational Series.

During the hard times of the Great Depression, a close-knit community of Milwaukee artists struggled to make ends meet while continuing to create. Throughout the 1930s they forged a camaraderie that is reflected in a group of 39 portraits owned by the Library. Sketches were done by artists such as Kendrick Bell, Ruth Grotenrath, Fred Logan, Alfred Sessler, Schomer Lichtner, and Gerrit Sinclair. Some of the artists portrayed in the sketches include Robert von Neumann, Gustave Moeller, and Paul Clemens.

Graeme Reid, Assistant Director of the Museum of Wisconsin Art, will discuss this group of artists and the impact they had in the arts.

Seating is limited. Please call the Art, Music & Recreation Department at (414) 286-3071 to register.
