The Warehouse is a 4,000 square foot gallery displaying curated exhibits of the thousands of artworks Shannon and his wife, Serr, have collected over the years.
“We see The Warehouse as a new arts hub for Milwaukee and Wisconsin,” Shannon said. “We look forward to hosting shows from our collection and of works of significant artists, as well as hold events that will benefit the arts community and arts lovers.”
The Warehouse is free to view and open by appointment. The inaugural exihibit, “Concentrations,” features 70 artworks ranging from monotypes to photographs to contemporary craft from 53 artists, including Jim Dine, Mary Frank, David Hockney, Alex Katz, Tsukioka Kogyo, Henri Matisse, Keith Haring, Sally Mann, and Robert Henri. The exhibit runs through Feb. 8, 2019.
