MILWAUKEE (June 7, 2023) -- Exquisite pottery, mesmerizing photography, intricate woodwork, dazzling necklaces, whimsical sculpture and other beautifully crafted pieces will once again appear in Deer District as part of the Morning Glory Art Fair. The 48th annual event brings together talented artists from Wisconsin and eight other states, August 12-13, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m., on thePlaza at Fiserv Forum, 1111 Vel R. Phillips Ave, Milwaukee

The Morning Glory Art Fair is one of the area’s premier outdoor art events where 130 artists from near and far showcase their creations in 15 categories, including ceramics, digital art, fiber, glass, jewelry, mixed media, painting, photography, sculpture, wood and more. Each artist is individually juried into the fair, based on a committee review of their portfolio. The stringent review process ensures the highest level of fine craft and art are presented at Morning Glory.  

Morning Glory is free and open to the public and is hosted by Wisconsin Craft, one of the oldest fine craft organizations in the country. 

“Art can truly lift the mind, body and soul,” says Jean Wells, president of Wisconsin Craft. “Our organization is dedicated to making art accessible to all and to supporting the professional artists who create the pieces that enrich our lives.”

As part of its focus on supporting artists, each year Wisconsin Craft presents two signature events – Morning Glory Art Fair and MKE Fine Craft Studio Tour. The organization also offers an online directory so buyers can easily purchase signature items from more than 75 artists.
