Milwaukee Art Museum to Light Iconic Calatrava-Designed Wings Pink
Frank Meyl
MILWAUKEE, WIS.-For the first time ever, beginning today, Wednesday, September 23, the Milwaukee Art Museum's soaring Santiago Calatrava-designed addition will glow in a bright shade of pink. The 10-day lighting project will highlight breast cancer awareness and celebrate the opening of the Museum's major fall exhibition, Andy Warhol: The Last Decade. With a 217-foot wingspan that opens and closes twice daily, the illuminated wings of the Quadracci Pavilion will offer an extraordinary spectacle along the city's skyline.

The Museum will be lit in pink each evening from 7:00 p.m. until 10:30 p.m., starting this Wednesday, September 23, through the beginning of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month on Friday, October 2. The end time will be extended until midnight on Friday, September 25; Saturday, September 26; and Friday, October 2. The Museum’s outdoor fountains will also reflect the bright pink color.

“For the first time ever, we’ll light the Museum in color – bright pink – to show our support for the breast cancer awareness and to celebrate the opening of the Andy Warhol exhibition. The lighting project will offer a beautiful visual representation of art as a catalyst for healing and hope, and underscores the Museum’s importance as a community gathering place,” said Dan Keegan, Director, Milwaukee Art Museum.

A Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure will begin at the Milwaukee Art Museum’s lakefront on Sunday, September 27. In an additional show of support, the Milwaukee Art Museum will offer free admission on race day to all cancer survivors participating in the Komen Race for the Care. All other participants will receive a special offer for $2 off admission. The Komen Race for the Cure, the largest series of 5K runs/fitness walks in the world, raises significant funds and awareness for the fight against breast cancer, celebrates breast cancer survivorship, and honors those who have lost their battle with the disease.
