About Wisconsin

The Art Institute of Wisconsin is located in Milwaukee's historic Third Ward, just south of downtown. Once the city's wholesale and manufacturing district, the Third Ward is now a trendy, upscale neighborhood where loft apartments, nightclubs, antique stores, boutiques, restaurants, and art galleries line the streets.

Milwaukee is the largest city in the state of Wisconsin, located on the southwestern shore of Lake Michigan. Recognized for its large German population, breweries, and brewpubs, the city is home to numerous cultural, art, music, and food festivals, along with a wide range of museums, performing arts venues, gardens, and parks.

Milwaukee serves as the corporate headquarters for more than a dozen Fortune 1000 companies, and in 2009, five companies in the area were selected as leaders in their respective fields as part of Fortune magazine's "World's Most Admired Companies." The city was also listed as being commuter friendly by Forbes Magazine. Milwaukee is truly a fascinating mix of the traditional and contemporary.

Milwaukee is also home to the Meir Festival Grounds and Summerfest, recognized as the world's largest music festival. The festival takes place annually in late June and early July. The city is also home to professional baseball's Brewers and professional basketball's Bucks. There are also indoor soccer and arena football teams in the region.
