arte

One of my absolute favorite places to visit here in Milwaukee is the Milwaukee Art Museum. I went there for the first time back in my single days and fell in love. Since then I continue to visit with Benjamin and now with our little man.

I get lost in all of the phenomenal architecture in the pavilion that was designed as an addition by Santiago Calatrava. The museum has 30,000 works of art and I have yet to visit every floor!

On one of my visits I became so excited when I found a piece from one of my most-loved modern artists, Elizabeth Peyton. Some day I hope to meet her in person and/or own one of her pieces (a girl can dream right?! ;) )

If you ever come to visit- this place is a must see and another reason Milwaukee is underrated.

just insane how realistic


I think Ben was trying to tell me something
