More doors opening for Doors Open Milwaukee (DOM)

HMI has been busy finding allies for Doors Open Milwaukee (DOM). We're already partnering with the City of Milwalukee, Milwaukee County, Metropolitan Milwaukee Chamber of Commerce, Visit Milwaukee, Marquette University, Easttown, Westown, The Historic Third Ward Association, Milwaukee Downtown BID #21, the American Institute of Architects - Milwaukee chapter and others.  To date we have about thirty buildings on board including Marquette's new Law School, the Milwaukee Rep, US Bank, the Milwaukee Gas Light Building, Immanuel Presbyterian Church, MSOE's Grohmann Museum, the Milwaukee Athletic Club, Central Library, County Historical Society, City Hall and the County Courthouse. We've also been busy finding experts for over two dozen in-depth (but also free!) tours. We're working on a spanking new DOM brochure and stepping up our fundraising efforts. In January a DOM Steering Committee will be formed to begin working on the myriad tasks that will have to be done - from marketing to financials, volunteer coordination to building owner contacts.  If you can lend us some time over the next 10 months please contact us at  It's going to be the first of a great annual event that will highlight our city's built environment like never before.
