The DNCC commissioned Mauricio Ramirez, a member of the Milwaukee art scene, to design the credential’s artwork. The credential features the internationally-renowned Milwaukee Art Museum, the largest art museum in Wisconsin and one of the city’s most distinguished landmarks.
“Whenever I create a piece that represents Milwaukee, I want to make sure it includes our landmarks, architecture and culture, and the Milwaukee Art Museum was one of those places that really represents all of these features of our city,” said Ramirez. “It’s a great feeling to put our best foot forward as a city through this art, and to know that delegates participating across the country will receive something that shows the soul of Milwaukee.”
“We are honored and thrilled that Mauricio Ramirez selected the Milwaukee Art Museum to represent our vibrant city for the upcoming convention,” said Margaret Andera, interim chief curator and curator of contemporary art of the Milwaukee Art Museum. “His striking depiction of our Santiago Calatrava–designed Quadracci Pavilion showcases Milwaukee’s dynamic energy, its architecture and culture—all things that make us proud to call our city home.”
