Cleopatra Makes Milwaukee at the Milwaukee Public Museum/Make Milwaukee 2012 Week 9

by Nate Imig

What makes Milwaukee? Cleo! The Cleopatra Exhibit at the Milwaukee Public Museum is something to behold, and let me tell you….it is extraordinary. We are one of only four cities in the United States to house this exhibit, and I got to go behind the scenes to find out how these amazing artifacts made their way to our fair city.

Ellen Censky,  Senior Vice President and Academic Dean, gave me a tour of the exhibit and explained the origins of getting it here, getting those huge, freakin' statues erected, and the legacy of Cleo herself.
