Thank You MAM...
The primary purpose of our trip was to see the "Bruce Nauman Works with Light" at the Milwaukee Art Museum (MAM). Located on the lakefront, at the edge of downtown, MAM is a real feast for the eyes. The Quadracci pavilion (shown here) was architect Santiago Calatrava's first completed project in the US. Opened in 2001, the building itself is worth the price of admission alone.
Unfortunately, weather was such that they were not able to open the Burke Brise Soleil while we were there. I have seen it once on a brief visit several years ago.
The view looking down the bridge connecting the museum from downtown to the lakefront.
Same view about fifteen feet to the right.
East end of the bridge next to the prow.
About 15 feet from the prior image on the approach to the round elevator (which was very cool on it's own.).
Tomorrow... The interior!
