1-3-13 and 2-5-15
The first adventure we had this year was a visit to the Milwaukee Art Museum. It was designed by Santiago Calatrava, a Spanish Architect. It was our 2nd trip to Milwaukee, the first one was in December. There is plenty of indoor fun when the winter winds blow. Our approach to the museum was from behind, it’s striking no matter which side you see it on.
We were there to view the Rembrandt Van Dyck Gainsborough collection. It’s a traveling exhibition from the Kenwood House in London. See my link since cameras were not allowed. Also some great views inside the museum.
On our return visit the highlight was the retrospective of African-American fashion as portrayed in the Ebony fashion magazine. The exhibit ran from Feb 5 to May 3rd, and were were there for the opening day.
In the lobby is this beautiful blown glass sculpture designed by Dale Chihuly. There was neat cafe too, it looked like we were in some futuristic scene.
The view inside looking toward the path we saw the outside on was just as breathtaking.
In one of the gift shops they were selling London souvenirs since the featured exhibition was from London.
There is much to see here, this great museum is well worth the visit if you come to Milwaukee.
