Last week I was flying out of Milwaukee, and took the opportunity to stop by their art museum just before my flight. It was a very brief visit - less than an hour - but well worth the effort. The architecture of the building is stunning, with an appearance like that of a ship. Since the museum is located on Lake Michigan, this is no accident. The architect is Santiago Calatrava of Spain, and the design includes "wings" that raise and lower. Astonishing!
The art collection is very strong, too, with excellent holdings in the areas of German and German Expressionist art. They also have a fine collection of modern American art, including pieces by Warhol, Lichtenstein, Morris, and the lovely painting shown at the left by San Francisco's own Wayne Thiebaud. I needed several more hours there! Take a look at their website, and by all means visit if you have the chance. The site is http://mam.org/info/.
I am a San Francisco artist who enjoys making art and visiting art exhibits.
