For 40+ years, Morning Glory has been a downtown Milwaukee art fair destination for locals and visitors alike. The fair is organized and hosted by the Wisconsin Designer Crafts Council to continue its mission in providing access to quality art as a key part of the state’s rich cultural life.
Expect to see the best from over 130 artists chosen from among hundreds that apply. The Morning Glory Art Fair showcases art to wear and art for the home in ceramics, fiber, glass, jewelry, painting, mixed media, photography, wood, and more. The Fair is juried, and takes place on and adjacent to the beautiful new plaza alongside Fiserv Forum, in downtown Milwaukee.
Morning Glory Art Fair 2021
The Wisconsin Designer Crafts Council (WDCC) is planning for Morning Glory Art Fair 2021 at the plaza in front of Fiserv Forum for the weekend of August 14-15 and is pleased to announce our new Morning Glory Art Fair show director Sue Schrader.
As an event planner and marketer with more than 20+ years of experience, Sue has worked for Virgin/EMI Records, GMR Marketing, Blind Ambition Management and various artists and festivals, producing and publicizing everything from concert series to gallery nights; from cruise ship events to large artist meet and greets. She’s obsessed with innovating new ways of creating amazing live experiences that turn out to be absurdly enjoyable and effective.
Sue wants to live a world filled with creative artists, books that come bundled with chocolate, and a force field around her keyboard that repels coffee and at times, wine. When she’s not organizing amazing events or creating effective marketing plans to help her clients get better coverage, you can find her walking around barefoot with her one-eyed black lab named Elvis, roller skating, or asking the question “why” for the twenty bajillionth time.
Sue is on a mission to help artists of all art forms get their art seen, heard and appreciated.
Stay tuned for more information as the application process will begin in late October on Zapplication. Artists who were jury exempt for 2020 will be extended that status for 2021.
