Our attention to detail and passion for creative event planning will be an excellent complement to such a versatile space,” said Ed McIntosh, who is leading the event planning team for Saz’s Catering.

Jan Serr Studio, named after UWM Department of Art & Design alumna and visual artist Jan Serr, was added to the UWM Kenilworth Square East Building in 2016 as part of a generous donation to the UWM Peck School of the Arts. Outside of formal and private events, Jan Serr Studio will function as a technologically integrated performance venue showcasing works from a diverse group of university and community artists. The space also offers a small theater for intimate performances and a first floor gallery grand entrance to welcome guests.

Jan Serr Studio is currently booking events for Fall 2018 through 2019 with plans to open early October 2018. For additional information about Jan Serr Studio, CLICK HERE.
