The Muse is filled with a rotating exhibition of a wide variety of art, guaranteed to enhance your visit, feed your spirit and inspire your own creativity. All exhibited art is available for purchase. We are committed to helping support Milwaukee's vibrant artists. We proudly participate in Bay View Gallery Night. 

Current Exhibition

We are very excited to announce that one of our favorite Bay View artists - Dena Nord - will be on exhibit in a one woman show throughout the building in celebration of her June wedding and the homecoming at The Muse of her family and friends from May 12 - July 5th.  Join us for a Gallery closing night party on June 28, 2017 from 6 - 8 p.m.

Dena Nord blends together design thinking with an organic process to create vivid abstract paintings. Her artwork brings statements to walls by offering visual playgrounds for the eye. When composing paintings, Dena works in a variety of mediums with a diverse set of color palettes. Her plant-like layouts seem to radiate with rhythm on the canvas. Her goal is to move your eye around the work and let the viewer find his or her own imagery within the shapes.

She was born and raised outside of Chicago, IL. She received her BFA from the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee in 2009, where she focused on both design and painting. Dena currently works as an artist and educator while living in Milwaukee, WI. She is also a founding partner at Odvant Creative, a small design studio. Her work has been exhibited at the augmented world expo in Santa Clara California, Gallery 2622 in Wauwatosa, the Cedarburg Cultural Center, Gallerie M in Milwaukee, and other galleries throughout her career.
