MKE Art Walk

Take a Walk on the Artsy Side

Walking Tour

MKE Art Walk

Milwaukee has put itself on the map as a thriving city of beer, brats, and Happy Days, but it has earned a rightful place in the art world as well. You don’t need to stay inside for a day in a museum to immerse yourself in art! With a local artist as your tour guide, our MKE Art Walk takes you out under the open sky to showcase the stunning collection of public art splashed across the city. We’ll begin by sipping a glass of champagne at the Saint Kate Arts Hotel, a hotel focused on celebrating the arts and the creative process. We will walk along the Milwaukee Riverwalk where you’ll see why Milwaukee is rapidly becoming a world-renowned center of artwork, as well as to see the largest contemporary urban art exhibition in the world known as Sculpture MKE. During the walk, our artist will take you to see a selection of handpicked art spaces and provide an intimate lesson about the artists featured, the different styles and forms of the trade, and how they have developed and evolved over time.
