MIAD collaborates with Google Arts & Culture to celebrate Milwaukee
Google recently launched its partnership with 16 world-class Milwaukee institutions, including the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design (MIAD), bringing the city’s culture, people and stories online on its Google Arts & Culture platform. Milwaukee is the first city in the Great Lakes region and second in the country to be featured as part of Google’s global initiative to capture and share the unique culture of cities.
“We are excited to bring Milwaukee’s culture and thriving art scene on Google Arts & Culture for anyone, anywhere to enjoy online,” said Google Arts & Culture US Lead Simon Delacroix.
