Artbook Milwaukee/Make Milwaukee 2012 Week 2

by Nate Imig

Carrie Ann Seymour is full of energy…ART energy! And she will stalk you if you are an artist. She says so herself. She is the force behind Artbook Milwaukee, a tiny, glossy, hand-held little gem of art itself, which provides information on and support for local (and national) artists. The book iself is 5" x 5", just small enough to tuck in your pocket and take a little art with you everywhere you go.

I met with Carrie Ann and her colleague, designer James Kloiber, the day of their official opening of Artbook: The Office, located at 1761 N. Warren Avenue, right off Milwaukee's hip Brady Street area.

We talked about making art, about supporting local, home-grown artists, and shared chai, champagne, and really good dark chocolate.
