Arts / Culture focus area
Arts and cultural activities raise the quality of life in our communities. Our foundation supports projects that expand and increase accessibility to the arts through outreach and that enhance creative expression in children through educational activities.
Discovery World connects innovation, science, technology and the environment with exploration and learning through interactive exhibits and experiential learning programs. Our foundation has sponsored exhibits such as Energy and Ingenuity, where visitors are encouraged to learn about power — from solar and wind to kinetic energy generated by people.
Milwaukee Art Museum
The mission of the Milwaukee Art Museum is to collect and preserve art and to present it to the community as a source of inspiration and education. The museum attributes its success to organizations like ours, which has supported its efforts for years. Our foundation has sponsored exhibits such as Art in Bloom; Pissarro: Creating the Impressionist Landscape; and Rembrandt and His Time: Masterworks from the Albertina, Vienna.
Fox Cities Performing Arts Center
The Fox Cities Performing Arts Center is a place for the community to engage in educational opportunities and enhance understanding and enjoyment of life through the arts. The center is a premier venue for performing arts attractions and a dynamic environment for community arts organizations. Our foundation has supported the center in various ways, including sponsorship of various performances.
United Performing Arts Fund
In addition to lifting spirits through performances, United Performing Arts Fund’s 34 performing arts groups help attract and retain high-level professionals to the region. The performing groups also change the lives of 400,000 children through education and outreach every year. Our foundation not only contributes annually to this arts organization but also encourages employee contributions through a matching program. The match builds contributions for UPAF affiliates and other arts organizations, museums, libraries and zoos throughout Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, as part of an expanded workplace campaign. We also have supported UPAF through the company’s loaned executive program and in sponsoring the Ride for the Arts.
