Well, it's officially 2014 and we would like to thank you for attending NYE MKE 2014. We hope that you had an opportunity to experience the interactive art, the amazing music and the incredible ambiance of the Milwaukee Art Museum. Please keep an eye out for the event’s photos and video in the coming days through our website and social channels.

In case you spent all night on the dance floor, here’s a top 5 rundown of our favorite moments of NYE MKE 2014:

1. Surprise Performance by Ray Nitti

2. Two Sincere Marriage Proposals…that we know of

3. Graffiti Ice Wall

4. Roaming Fish Tank Man

5. One Epic Midnight Celebration with the GRAEF Hop Drop 

As with all of our events, the safety of our attendees and the quality of the experience are of the utmost importance.  We would like you to know we support the decision of the Milwaukee Art Museum security staff to end the event at 12:35am due to the conditions of the floors, which they believed was compromising the safety of the guests at that time. We hope you agree that the quality of the event lived up to your expectations despite the unanticipated change of schedule. We acknowledge that the volume of the departing guests resulted in unforeseen delays and inconveniences.

We hope you have a happy New Year and to see you at NEWaukee events in 2014.
