Docomomo US is thrilled to welcome our 19th regional chapter, Docomomo US/Wisconsin.
Docomomo US/Wisconsin is a regional chapter of Docomomo US that promotes awareness, appreciation and protection of Modern architecture and design across the state of Wisconsin through documentation, engagement, and advocacy efforts. Their mission focuses on Modern buildings, structures, cultural sites, and allied public arts realized during the 20th Century. The newly formed Wisconsin chapter will celebrate creators, clients, companies and cultural organizations from all of Wisconsin’s diverse communities: urban, rural, and in-between.
Docomomo US/Wisconsin is creating the Modern Wisconsin Registry, a catalog of buildings, landscapes, sites, and allied arts of the Modern movement. We encourage anyone interested in helping to launch this initiative to contact us at email@example.com. Once the Modern Wisconsin Registry is set up, there will be a separate process for submitting new sites to the catalog.
Docomomo US/Wisconsin organizes educational programming, including lectures, exhibitions, tours and other events, to engage its members and the public in the study and preservation of the Modern built environment. To do so, they collaborate with other educational, preservation, and design organizations across the state.
Docomomo US/Wisconsin advocates for the Modern buildings, landscapes, sites, and allied arts in Wisconsin. We promote sustainability by advocating for the reuse and preservation of existing Modern buildings.
If you are a Wisconsin resident and would like to get involved with the new chapter, the first step is to become a member. Membership in both Docomomo US and the local chapter are included.
