Hawthorn Contemporary, located in the historic Walker’s Point neighborhood in Milwaukee, Wisconsin is an art venue dedicated to presenting experimental and exploratory contemporary art.
Walker’s Point neighborhood has undergone a significant transformation in recent years where area warehouses and factories have been replaced by apartments, restaurants and other upscale establishments. Inevitably, these neighborhood developments resulted in many artists and galleries in the neighborhood to relocate or close. But some firmly established art venues in the neighborhood still remain; Var Gallery and Studios, Suburban, Alice Wilds and the Walker’s Point Art Center to name a few. In March 2018, Hawthorn Contemporary will have its first exhibition in the space previously occupied by the venerable The Pitch Project, which closed in August 2017 after 4 impactful years of cultural programming and exhibitions.
Hawthorn Contemporary is committed to continuing The Pitch Project’s tradition of providing a platform for culture producers and artists working in the national and international arenas. The exhibitions and related programming will engage the arts community and foster dialogues that are reflective of current conditions of our society.
