The Miller Art Museum is hosting a Milwaukee artist as part of the county-wide Celebrate Water Door County initiative. As part of the “Our Water Stories” exhibit focusing on water, artist Melanie Ariens will be speaking at the museum on June 14th, sharing her passion for the Great Lakes and how it inspires her artwork. Elizabeth Meissner-Gigstead, Miller Art Museum executive director, says there will be diversity in the type of works on display in the exhibit.
Meissner-Gigstead adds Ariens also uses her passion for art to inspire local leaders and community members to engage in environmental issues, especially the water we all share. There will also be an opening reception for the exhibit on June 2nd that’s free to the public beginning at 6:30 pm.
