WEDNESDAY, JUNE 8, 2011- Bob Kraft, Chairman and CEO of FirstPathway Partners and Co-chair of the MMAC China Council, attended the exclusive President’s Circle Preview Party- The Emperor’s Private Paradise: Treasures from the Forbidden City. This event was a sneak peak to the exhibition on view Saturday, June 11 through Sunday, September 11, 2011.
The Milwaukee Art Museum is one of only three museums in the world to ever showcase the over ninety objects of ceremony and leisure from the Qianlong Garden and the Forbidden City in Beijing.
“This is an extraordinary, unprecedented opportunity for the public to see masterpieces from the legendary Forbidden City complex before the objects return to Beijing where they will likely never leave the country again,” said Daniel Keegan, director of the Milwaukee Art Museum. “We are honored to be one of only three museums worldwide to present this breathtaking exhibition. It reaffirms our commitment to bringing world-class exhibitions to Milwaukee, and underscores the importance of the Milwaukee Art Museum on the international stage.”
