Milwaukee Art Museum Garden Club

About the garden club

The Milwaukee Art Museum Garden Club was established in 1921. Our mission is to support the mission of the Milwaukee Art Museum with projects and acquisitions. MAMGC promotes education, environmental awareness, and community service, as well as the members' enjoyment of gardening, landscape design, horticulture, and flower arranging. 


This year, we will focus on the theme "building on strengths while respecting ourselves, each other and the environment." This theme aligns with the National Garden Club President's theme, "Service in Action." Monthly, we will focus on endangered species, specifically pollinators and amphibians. Committee members will do research and present brief reports at our meetings. As gardeners, it is our responsibility to learn what we can do to help our endangered species. As we move forward in our educational growth, we have also begun to plan new projects to align with our endangered species topics. We also share common concerns like groundwater runoff, land preservation, public park issues and road beautification. We promote the educational, physical, recreational, and aesthetic benefits of gardening.


We will develop our leadership skills not only in working in committees and on projects, but also at Art in Bloom.


Members are the backbone of the Garden Club. We look forward to having all of our members join a committee and be active participants at meetings and with our projects. Together we will serve and build on each other's strengths. Not only will we grow as gardeners, but also as leaders in our community, playing vital roles in helping improve our environment.
