Exposed exhibit
"Snapshots" highlights Milwaukee in pictures


July 2006

Milwaukee Downtown recently let loose five talented photographers on the city of Milwaukee. The result? A stunning black-and-white photography exhibit, "Snapshots: Downtown Exposed."

According to Beth Nicols, executive director of Milwaukee Downtown, the photographs "tell the story of the downtown renaissance and further reinforce why it is such a great place to live, work, and play."

The participating photographers Dan Bishop, Maria Ellen Huebner, John Korom, John Nienhuis and Brian Malloy were hand-picked by Milwaukee Downtown to capture "slices of life" of the growing city.

"The photographers participating in this project not only created an art exhibit, but documented a compelling story 10 years in the making," says Nicols.

The featured photographs, which debuted at the Milwaukee Downtown BID #21 Annual Meeting at the Milwaukee Art Museum in April, now comprise a traveling exhibit that appears in downtown office buildings, and civic and visitor centers throughout Milwaukee.

M Magazine is giving you a "snapshot" of the traveling exhibit, but call (414) 220-4700 ext. 29 to find out where you can view the show up close, and personal.
