MMoCA hosts "The Stoop Project" in the main lobby

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- A new exhibit at the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art has now opened.

It's called "The Stoop Project" and it's designed by a local Wisconsin artist. It's a three-part seating lounge that's made for the lobby of the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art in downtown Madison.

It's designed by Bird Ross and Tom Loeser. The project is inspired by the traditional front stoop of a house or urban apartment building. A staple of American residential architecture, the front stoop evolved in the nineteenth century to provide formal access from the street to the home's main living quarters; this elevated entrance allowed residents and their guests to bypass the service section of the house located at street level or below.
