UWM alum engages non-artists as hotel artist-in-residence

Posted in Press

Zimpel, who earned his MFA in art from UWM in 2021, is the first-ever artist-in-residence at Saint Kate-The Arts Hotel.

The studio’s downtown location, on the hotel’s first floor just off the entrance to the Milwaukee Center, attracts hotel guests, casual passers-by and people going to the nearby theaters and restaurants.

How visitors interact with Zimpel and the studio can range from sharing ideas about photos on display or creating and using watercolors to make their own mark or create their own work of art.

“It’s an unbelievably vibrant space,” Zimpel said. “It’s porous. People come in a rush, and at the end of the day, they go on around the city, the state, the world.”
