Var Gallery is a contemporary art gallery located in the Walker’s Point neighborhood of Milwaukee, Wisconsin with two locations on 2nd and 5th Street.

Originally the Milwaukee Aluminum and Brass Foundry, built-in 1890. Var Gallery and Studios opened in 2013 and continues to thrive in Walker’s Point. Throughout the building you’ll not only see a well-rounded selection of contemporary art, but also hints of the building’s past, intentionally preserved. This also serves as a rare opportunity to walk through the artist studios, normally not open to the public. Tours are self-guided, however, studio artists and the gallery director(s) will be in their respective spaces to answer any and all questions you may have.
