Open since 1936, iconic Artist and Display closing after 78 years in business

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- Artist and Display, an iconic art supply and education store in Milwaukee will soon be closing.

Open since 1936, the family-owned business will soon be closing its doors after 78 years.

The stores co-owners have been beyond retirement age for several years, but they say a recent death in the family served as a wake-up call that it was time to close.

The store will close in February when its lease is up.
