Milwaukee is Pretty Cool Y’all

I spent last weekend visiting my brother, Tim, in Milwaukee. This Midwestern city really brings it on the art scene. On Saturday we went to the Milwaukee Art Museum and I have to say I was impressed.

The architecture is stunning. The building looks like it could take flight and the ‘wings’ are retractable.

I took a few snap shots of some pieces that really caught my eye. I love blown glass and it’s easy to spot work by Dale Chihuly. I don’t think this would fit in my foyer. Darn!

I’m a sucker for Georgia O’Keeffe, but this piece is different from the florals she’s known for. I’m not usually one for landscapes, but I could do The Thomas Crown Affair job on this one.

 The Milwaukee Art Museum also had a piece by another favorite of mine, Marc Chagall.

Hello, my name is Jennifer. For those of you who don’t know me very well, I like a lot of color. Can you tell? Maybe I should plan a red and blue room when I redecorate our home in Summerville. I only have to look to my friends Chihuly, O’Keeffe and Chagall for inspiration.

Who are some of your favorite artists? Have you used artwork for decorating inspiration?

  1. Love, love, love! I love museums especially ones that are interesting from the inside out! What an amazing building. I also love blown glass. That piece from Chihuly -WOW. And all in MilWaukee-who knew?

  2. When I think of Milwaukee, I usually think of beer and Laverne and Shirley. The city has come a long way since the 70’s and it’s even better when you get to visit family too!
