Saint Kate Becomes Home to MoWa Downtown Location

Posted in Hotel News

With a strong commitment to supporting Wisconsin art and artists, Saint Kate is pleased to announce its partnership with The Museum of Wisconsin Art (MOWA). The new affiliation—officially called MOWA | DTN, a reference to the downtown Milwaukee location—will consist of a 1,700-square-foot gallery located on the first floor of our hotel, offering travelers and guests from across the globe access to the highest caliber of Wisconsin art in Milwaukee’s newest experiential artistic platform.

MOWA | DTN will offer a museum experience right within Saint Kate. Travelers and art enthusiasts will gain exposure to emerging and contemporary artists in new media through 4-5 changing exhibitions, artist talks and curator talks, as well as shuttles to and from the museum. Exhibitions at MOWA | DTN will be free and open to the public.

“A collaboration of this stature between a museum and hotel is truly groundbreaking. This is unique in the museum industry,” said MOWA Executive Director and CEO Laurie Winters. “MOWA is a resource for the entire state of Wisconsin. This collaboration will expand its artistic footprint further across the state, providing access to Wisconsin art for travelers and the Milwaukee community.”

“Collaboration and community are core pillars that inspire our vision for Saint Kate. Partnering with MOWA was a natural next step to create a powerful and dynamic platform for the arts in downtown Milwaukee. What better way to help people experience art than to have one of Wisconsin’s most respected art museums right inside our hotel,” said Gregory S. Marcus, president and CEO of The Marcus Corporation. “We are excited to present a creatively bold platform for Wisconsin’s artistic community to showcase their works within the main lobby of Saint Kate. Guests will be able to participate in the wonder of artistic expression from the moment they walk through the front door. From creative meetings and business events to an enriching weekend getaway, all visitors can now learn more about the talent of Wisconsin artists and our growing vibrant artist community when visiting Saint Kate.”

Additional announcements on MOWA | DNT 2019 exhibition schedule will be announced in the coming months.
