Milwaukee Art Museum Announces Reopening Timeline
The Milwaukee Art Museum has announced that it will begin a phased reopening of its galleries to the public in the summer, with new protocols developed to ensure the safety of staff and visitors.

The Museum’s “Safer with Art” plan includes robust cleaning procedures, the installation of hand sanitizing stations at entrance points and throughout the galleries, and the requirement that all staff and visitors wear cloth face coverings. A dedicated pathway through the Collection Galleries on the Museum’s main level will encourage and emphasize proper social distancing, and a new digital timed-ticketing system will be part of an overall touchless experience inside the Museum. Priority hours will be reserved for first responders, and those among vulnerable populations. The Museum also utilizes a MERV15 air filtration in the campus HVAC system, which is considered hospital grade. Additionally, admission during Phase One will be free for one month, thanks to The Krei Family in Memory of Melinda.

The Notes: Lakefront in Milwaukee is such a special place, this is a great sign that normalcy will eventually return. I have my kites packed and am ready to get over there....
