Haggerty Museum reopens to the Marquette community

The Haggerty Museum of Art is now open to students, faculty and staff members (with a Marquette ID).

The museum is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The museum remains closed to the public until further notice. Social distancing measures that align with Step 4 of Marquette’s Recovery Plan have been implemented throughout the museum.  

The upstairs has been transformed to a teaching gallery that aligns with courses that frequently integrate the museum’s exhibitions and collections. The exhibition, “Marquette Curriculum Connections” features objects drawn from the Haggerty’s collection that address themes such as social justice, the environment, gender issues, micro/macro views of the world, Old Testament stories, movement, critical thinking, Spanish-speaking cultures and more.  

Another exhibit on view at the Haggerty is “HMA DNA: Collection Highlights, featuring work from artists including Salvador Dali, Keith Haring, Jacob Lawrence, the Rembrandt Workshop and others.  

The Greater Milwaukee Foundation’s Mary L. Nohl Fund Fellowships for Individual Artists 2019 exhibition has moved to the Haggerty’s recently launched Google Arts and Culture page. Individual online galleries will feature the work of the five fellows and will be accompanied by the interpretive materials traditionally offered at the Museum including artist statements, biographies, and catalog essays. Additional multi-media content including artist interviews, studio visits and online public programs will be added to the online exhibition throughout the exhibition period, offering increased access to the artists themselves and providing additional insights into their working processes.  

To support socially distanced, in-person classes during this semester, the Haggerty has repurposed its largest gallery space to a classroom hosting Spanish, biology, philosophy and theology classes.
