Love for Art
There's no museum quite like this one, and here you get open, wide reaching views of the grounds. It can conjure up memories of both learning and admiration for all things beautiful and moving. The use of space is intriguing and is meant to provoke thoughts about it significance and use. This souvenir from United States faithfully depicts this love for culture and art in this complex of three buildings located at the shores of Lake Michigan.
The Milwaukee Art Museum in Detail
No visit to Milwaukee is complete without stopping by the Milwaukee Art Museum. If you are an art buff, you'll be impressed at the huge art collection that includes such big names as Pablo Picasso, Claude Monet, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and Andy Warhol. Through the more than 35,000 art works, the visitor will have the opportunity to become acquainted with the history of art starting in the Fifteenth century and ending in this century. The connoisseur will enjoy the works of German Expressionism and American art from the second half of the Twentieth century. One visit will not be enough to get to know and enjoy the beautiful pieces of American arts and crafts that you won't find at any other regional museum. The exponential growth of the museum and its holdings is quite surprising because it started as an art gallery, the first one in the state, in the late Nineteenth century.
Interestingly, the museum also houses the War Memorial Center, Santiago Calatrava's architectural design the Quadracci Pavillion, and the Kahler Building. The museum hosts temporal exhibitions opening the opportunities of enjoying the most prestigious and avant garde art productions in the world. All in all, this is a great travel souvenir to take back home.
