UWM Gallery Night

Sep 21, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Celestial Map from the American Geographical Society Library

Atlas Novus Coelestis by  J.B. Homann and J.G. Doppelmayr 1742 courtesy of the American Geographical Society Library UWM.


Explore the galleries across UWM’s campus after hours, with choice artwork, historical pieces, and performances that pay tribute to the relationships between terrestrial / celestial and art / science. Visit the campus galleries in the Golda Meir Library (Special Collections, AGSL, Grind), Architecture and Urban Planning (SARUP Gallery), Mitchell Hall (Mathis Gallery – *open at 4:30PM*), Union (Union Art Gallery), Kenilworth Square East, and Curtin Hall (9th floor, C21 and WGS spaces).

We recommend starting at either Kenilworth, Union’s gallery (with an opportunity to see the renovation-in-progress), or the SARUP gallery, then moving to Mitchell Hall (1st floor, open 4:30PM), taking the 2nd floor pedestrian bridge to Curtin Hall (9th floor) and then moving to the library spaces for the poetry slam and AGSL conversation.

Pop-up events will help guide your flow through the spaces and include:

  • 4:30-6:00PM – Mathis Gallery – Art History Welcome Event
  • 5:00-6:00PM – UWM Library Grind space / cases – Poetry Slam
  • 5:30PM – Curtin Hall 9th Floor – WGS Quilt Rehanging
  • 6:00-6:30PM – UWM American Geographical Society Library – Star Maps Discussion led by Marcy M Bidney

A Gallery Night Passport will be available at most locations. You can mark where you have visited for a chance to win an art-themed prize.

All galleries and activities are free and open to the public.
