Statement of Purpose:

The Milwaukee Art Museum, located on the shores of Lake Michigan, combines art, dramatic architecture and stunning landscape design.

Time Magazine named MAM’s addition “Best Design of 2001” and Conde Nast Traveler calls it a “Wonder of the World.”

The new Quadracci Pavilion, the first Santiago Calatrava-designed building completed in the United States, features the glass-walled Windhover Hall enclosed by the Burke Brise Soleil, a sunscreen that can be raised or lowered creating a unique moving sculpture.

In other new areas of the Museum, visitors can take in lectures, films and other programs in our auditorium, chat with friends over lunch in our lakefront café, shop in the Museum store, and enjoy views of the city and lake from outdoor terraces and The Cudahy Gardens.

Highlights & Collections:

With a history dating back to 1888, the Milwaukee Art Museum’s far-reaching collections include nearly 20,000 works from antiquity to the present. The Museum’s permanent holdings include important collections of Old Masters and 19th and 20th century art, and our collections of American decorative arts, German Expressionism, folk and Haitian art, and American art after 1960 are among the nation’s best.

The Milwaukee Art Museum includes works by such important artists as Nardo di Cione, Francisco de Zurbarán, Jean-Honoré Fragonard, Auguste Rodin, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Edgar Degas, Claude Monet, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Pablo Picasso, Joan Miró, Georgia O’Keeffe, Winslow Homer, Mark Rothko, Jasper Johns and Andy Warhol.

The Education Department allows all visitors to access information about the Museum, through studio classes, workshops, tours, seminars and lectures. In the new Richard and Ethel Herzfeld Print, Drawing and Photography Study Center, visitors can see works of art that usually are not on view.

A Must-See Destination for All

At the Milwaukee Art Museum, there’s always a new art experience for every visitor, family or group – whether from around the corner or around the world. Visit the Milwaukee Art Museum, itself a work of art.

Along with the Collection, the Milwaukee Art Museum mounts changing exhibitions throughout each season.
