Discovering Art in Milwaukee

On a recent trip to Milwaukee, I spent a day wandering around the Milwaukee Art Museum.

First of all, the architecture of the building is incredible. The “wings” of the roof are opened up each morning and closed at night, and they “flap” closed and open again each day at noon. 
And really, you just can’t beat that gorgeous view of Lake Michigan!
The art inside was truly incredible. We spent the entire day looking at all of the pieces.
Luckily, I went with my sister, who studied art in college, so she was able to point out important artists and tell me about their work and the movements they were involved in. 

By far, the coolest thing was a piece of interactive art. It was literally just a light in a room and a fog machine, but we spent such a long time playing with the effects in this room.
