In 1997, Milwaukee Artist Paul Druecke began going door to door asking local residents to contribute a snapshot of a "social occasion, public or private, current or historical" to his project A Social Event Archive. He acquired 731 photographs over ten years. With this exhibition, the archive is on view for the first time in a museum in honor of its twentieth anniversary.
This catalogue has been published on the occasion of the exhibition Paul Druecke: A Social Event Archive, 1997-2007 at the Milwaukee Art Museum May 12-August 13, 2017, and includes an essay by and interview with the artist.
