Explore Wisconsin's oldest and largest art gallery with over 6,000 works of art.
The Historic Henry Harrison Button mansion was built by Harrison in 1875 at E. State St. and N. Prospect Ave. Its beautiful Victorian/Italianate structure now houses the David Barnett Gallery, which was established in 1966 and moved to the Button mansion in 1985.
David Barnett Gallery is open Tuesday-Friday from 11 AM – 5:30 PM, and Saturdays from 11 AM – 5 PM. For the launch of Doors Open on Saturday, September 26th, we will be open to the public from 10 AM – 5 PM. Wearing a mask and maintaing social distancing is required. With a donation of $5.00 to the gallery’s nonprofit A.R.T (Artist Resource Transglobal) you can go onto our rooftop space and view the Milwaukee skyline! Outside of the gallery we have the sculpture “Moonwalk” by Arthur Bauman.
