On June 23, Rashid Johnson's solo exhibition opened at the Milwaukee Art Museum. Hail We Now Sing Joy initiates a new program for the museum to feature the work of a contemporary artist in the Quadracci Pavilion (designed by architect Santiago Calatrava). The show is an impressive presentation of Johnson's recent work and an exciting way for director Marcelle Polednik to inaugurate the space with her new vision.
