Milwaukee Art Museum

Here is the first installment of the Bead and Button Show trip to Wisconsin.
I had a day off before the classes started and took a trip with a new friend to the museum. What a beautiful place. I grew up roaming the halls of the Detroit Institute of Arts. It's a grand place designed in what I would refer to as typical museum style. Square, huge, old-fashioned...everything you'd think of when stereotyping a museum you've seen in a movie. And, then there are places like the Milwaukee Art Museum with blow your socks off architecture. I could have sat in Windover Hall for the entire afternoon. Tomorrow I'll add a few pictures of my choices in artwork. I love museums....

This is a photo of the Chilhuly in the main entrance and a view down a hallway leading to one of the galleries! And if this is a hallway you can just imagine what the rest of the building was like.

Great pictures of our art museum--isn't the architecture amazing?! Hope you enjoyed the Bead & Button show this year. The dates next year are May 31 through June 7. I can't wait to read your other posts about the show and your experience.

Warmest regards,
