The BCA continues to make progress toward realizing its vision through two major developments:

Quorum Architects, Inc.


Gallery 507 serves as the BCA’s headquarters and is the organization’s first development in the heart of Milwaukee’s Bronzeville District at 507 W. North Ave. The 3,500 square foot facility is also home to an artists’ gallery, a makerspace and retail area. 

The BCA began developing the property in 2022. Design and construction of the new building is anticipated to be finished in Summer 2024, with programming starting in Fall 2024.


The BCA is developing an art museum in the heart of Bronzeville on a 3.4-acre parcel at the northeast corner of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive and North Avenue. Through the museum, the BCA seeks to expand Bronzeville’s legacy as a vibrant artistic hub of the Midwest, and make experiences with art of the African diaspora accessible to everyone.

Since 2021, the BCA has been gathering critical community and stakeholder feedback to support the project. In November 2023, Governor Tony Evers allocated $5 million in federal funds for the museum, a major step forward as planning for the project continues. 

Throughout the design process, the BCA will seek community input as it brings this vision closer to reality.
