Raymond Krueger: Fueling Community Appreciation for the Visual Arts
Raymond Krueger’s fascination with the visual arts dates back to a young age. He’s never painted, sculpted, or otherwise created visual art works, although he says his now-grown children have dabbled a bit.
Still, Krueger, an attorney with Michael Best & Friedrich in Milwaukee, has found many ways, spanning over decades, to devote himself to the visual arts. While he’s not creating art works, he’s helping to build a vibrant arts scene in Milwaukee – and beyond.
For instance, for 20 years, he chaired the Georgia O’Keeffe Foundation in Abiquiú, N.M., which was dedicated to perpetuating O’Keeffe’s legacy. Closer to home, he served on the board of trustees for the Milwaukee Art Museum for 12 years, including three years as president and three years as chair.
