Third Ward Art Festival returns on Saturday and Sunday from 10 AM -6 PM, along Broadway Street between St. Paul and Menomonee streets in downtown Milwaukee.
This is the fourth year for the event.
“Once again, we are delighted to work with the Historic Third Ward Association to bring a dynamic art festival to the heart of Milwaukee’s thriving arts and fashion district,” said Amy Amdur, president of Amdur Productions. “Rated as one of the top art destinations in the country, the historic Third Ward district will become the destination for residents and tourists to enjoy beautiful and one-of-a-kind artwork, live music and flavorful food this Labor Day weekend.”
Free and open to the public, the Third Ward Art Festival will showcase the work of more than 140-juried artists, 36 of whom are from Wisconsin, in a variety of mediums, including ceramics, fiber, glass jewelry, sculpture, mixed media, paintings, drawings, photography, printmaking, wood and furniture. Art collectors can look forward to viewing the works of standout artists such as ceramic artist Tim Arnold, abstract painter Gaston Carrio, jewelers John & Christine Strobel, photographer Steve Wewerka and Third Ward’s glass sculptor and poster artist Lisa Mote. In addition to the incredible artwork available for purchase, attendees will be able to interact with artists through demonstrations and booth chats.
Fun activities including color creations, art fest bingo and spin art will be available for children, making it the perfect festival for art enthusiasts of all ages. There will also be live music from Parisian singer Michelet and rock-duo Cirrus Falcon. Guests can enjoy lunch al fresco, amongst neighboring restaurants and the Milwaukee Public Market.
