The Third Ward is a wonderful mix of old and new, with great architecture and creative renovations. With a population of about 600,000 Milwaukee is the largest city in the state of Wisconsin and the 30th most populous city in the United States.
Parking is close and easy for artists. Staff support is there for artists from load in to load out. Very easy load in and load out.
