Milwaukee Co. agreement ensures longevity of Milwaukee Art Museum and War Memorial
MILWAUKEE - The War Memorial and the Milwaukee Art Museum made history on Tuesday when they signed an agreement to ensure that both lakefront treasures will be maintained for some time to come.
The pact lays out how funding by Milwaukee County will be divvied up between the two. County Board Chairwoman Marina Dimitrijevic says the pact ushers in a new era.
"Now is the next chapter for the War Memorial and Art Museum,” she said. “It will be a brand new synergy working together and something we can all be proud of."
Dimitrijevic added that the agreement is a way to honor our veterans and preserve our art.
