Charles Allis Art Museum

Milwaukee, WI

The Charles Allis Art Museum enriches Milwaukee’s quality of life by creating opportunities for residents and visitors to experience history, culture, and the arts, in particular by offering exhibitions and performances in a stately and intimate urban mansion, which permanently houses the art collection of early 20th-century industrialist Charles Allis and his wife, Sarah.

The Curatorial Department at the Charles Allis Art Museum oversees and manages the museum’s collection of historic objects and spaces, in addition to conceiving, facilitating, and managing exhibitions and ancillary programming.

Our curators aim to foster dialogue with the public and broader art community across cultures, while engaging educational and research organizations. Their work embodies the spirit of Charles and Sarah Allis, whose art collection took shape through world travel, study, and an avid interest in foreign cultures.
