Milwaukee Art Museum



I believe it is almost impossible to take a bad photo of the Calatrava addition at the Milwaukee Art Museum.

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

May 4, 2001, marked the initial unveiling of the Milwaukee Art Museum's new expansion and renovation which combines art, dramatic architecture and landscape design. Our new Quadracci Pavilion, the first Santiago Calatrava-designed building in the United States, features a 90-foot high glass-walled reception hall enclosed by the Burke Brise Soleil, a sunscreen that can be raised or lowered creating a unique moving sculpture.


The "wings" as seen from the inside.


The view of Lake Michigan is amazing.

A huge mobile in the lobby.
