“Source of inspiration and education”
The Milwaukee Art Museum collects and preserves art, presenting it to the community as a vital source of inspiration and education. The Milwaukee Art Museum houses a rich collection of over 30,000 works, with strengths in 19th- and 20th-century American and European art, contemporary art, American decorative arts, and is the world’s leading repository for work by untrained creators. The Museum campus is located on the shores of Lake Michigan and spans three buildings, including the Santiago Calatrava-designed Quadracci Pavilion and the Eero Saarinen-designed Milwaukee County War Memorial Center.
The most appropriate reaction for an out-of-towner...what!?? This architectural feat is worth the walk by. The building was designed by architect Santiago Calatrava and it's a true statement. It's also right on the water for some amazing lobby photo ops if you don't have time for the real gallery space.
Lovely views of Lake Michigan combined with wonderful architecture. The permanent collection is quite good and they have special showcases that last a few weeks at a time that are also very well done.
