The Marcus Center is a gathering place for everyone.

The arts have the power to create intrigue, delight us, and spark our imagination.

It’s awe-inspiring to see the love of the arts take root with a first front-row experience. We are deeply committed to providing these opportunities to the Milwaukee community. And equally committed to making sure our programming mirrors Milwaukee’s diverse community.

We can’t wait to welcome you very soon at our next Engage & Learn opportunity.
