Art in Every Room

Here at the Kinn Guesthouse, we truly believe in the work of our local Milwaukee artists. We have designed our gorgeous space to be your home away from home, and with that, we’ve added that extra special touch that can only be accomplished with the help of our city's top talent. Art is a way to bring a space together and evoke an emotionally, relaxed, creative state.  In fact, art has many scientifically proven benefits on your health.   There is a much deeper reason to why people display works of art in and around their lives, from their homes, to our workplaces, to guest spaces, vacant spaces, and beyond.  Art plays an integral role in all of our lives, even when we’re unaware of its presence. It’s far more than just filler or decorative pieces thrown about to cover space. It, in all of its different mediums and themes, makes [...]

For those looking for something beyond what you can find in your typical art museum or gallery, Milwaukee is the place you want to be!  Our diverse, eclectic city is home to many amazing artists – many artists who take their vibrant works to the streets to create some truly spectacular murals.  For these street artists, Milwaukee’s avenues, boulevards, and buildings are their gallery.
