Artist, designers and collectors coming together with the goal to create a new, informal, and social framework for art collecting.

Our events are intimate and designed to create a more welcoming and social environment for art collecting. Our art parties also emphasize forms of exchange that are personal and non-monetary (though we won't discourage people from buying art!).

"Object" is a collaborative project between independent artist and designer Ashley Morgan of Ashley Morgan Studio and Mary Louise Schumacher of Art City, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's online platform for cultural dialogue.
