Happy Monday everyone. I JUST got back home from my mini Midwest Road Trip, in partnership with Subaru! During my road trip I got to test out the new 2018 Subaru Crosstrek. Stay tuned for a full review SOON! I really love traveling and I had such a great time exploring the Midwest. Speaking of traveling, I’m heading to DC this weekend and then I’m off to NYC next week!
While on my Midwest road trip I got to visit so any fun new cities. The second stop on my road trip (since I’m counting Chicago as the first stop) was Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Although I visited Wisconsin a lot when I was a kid (mostly Wisconsin Dells), this was my first time in Milwaukee.
It’s a tradition of mine to always visit an art museum, or any museum, whenever I visit a new place. So obviously my first stop in Milwaukee was the Milwaukee Art Museum! I was super excited to visit the Milwaukee Art Museum because it’s one of the largest museums in the United States!
Here are some of my favorite photos from the Milwaukee Art Museum:
Just look at that gorgeous building! The Milwaukee Art Museum itself is a piece of art. In fact, it’s an architectural landmark, comprised of three buildings designed by three legendary architects: Eero Saarinen, David Kahler, and Santiago Calatrava.
Before I could even get to any of the art galleries, I had to stop and admire the amazing architecture that is the Milwaukee Art Museum!
My absolute favorite exhibition at the Milwaukee Art Museum was Degas to Picasso: Creating Modernism in France! The exhibit tells the story of modern art as it evolved during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. It was incredible. No photos were allowed in the gallery but I can assure you that it was worth the trip alone!
I always seem to visit popular art museums during off seasons/when they aren’t packed! I guess I’m just super lucky. Similar to my visits to the Saint Louis Art Museum and The Louvre, it seemed like I had the Milwaukee Art Museum completely to myself!
There were so many cool optical illusions throughout the Milwaukee Art Museum!
I really loved this installation! The orbs would change from white, to colorful, to black depending on how close you were to them.
See you again real soon Milwaukee Art Museum!
