2020 WCREW Showcase Award Category details
Woman of the Year:
Each year, WCREW recognizes a WCREW member who has somehow made a positive impact on Wisconsin’s commercial real estate industry. The ideal nominee’s impact may be very visible, or she may an unsung hero, whose behind-the-scenes efforts have quietly helped shape our community through leadership, mentorship, deal-making, commitment to diversity, or entrepreneurial spirit. Above all else, she must embody the mission of WCREW.

Congratulations to the Milwaukee Art Museum, Twenty in 20 Award winner!
The Quadracci Pavilion is the iconic sculptural addition to the Milwaukee Art Museum designed by Santiago Calatrava. The Spanish architect was inspired by the “dramatic, original building by Eero Saarinen...the topography of the city” and Frank Lloyd Wright’s Prairie-style architecture. This is one if not the most notable projects of our times. It started the rebirth of the Milwaukee lakefront that continues today.
