The Milwaukee Art Museum is running an interesting exhibit on Winslow Homer so we decided to take it in. It also happened to be the first Thursday of the month and the local Meijer stores are sponsoring free entry to the Art Museum so what better opportunity to see a lovely museum we haven’t visited in a long time!
On another occasion I’ll share more about the structure — the “new” wing on the MAM was designed by the renowned Calatrava and it’s quite something to see. But I’ll share more pictures about the addition another time.
The MAM is an OK museum for a city the size of Milwaukee. Considering how much was spent on the new addition I personally think we might have gotten more bang for our buck investing in more art, but “the Calatrava” has become a well recognized symbol of Milwaukee.
The museum has as much modern art as it does classic works. The newer stuff is much more what I remember from my days growing up and the exhibits are varied in style and medium.
I hesitated to take pictures in the Homer exhibition, for some reason those works really want to be seen in person.
Still, I thought maybe I could whet your appetite… and on another occasion I’ll share more about the museum and the exhibits.
