The Milwaukee Art Museum includes the new Santiago Calatrava-designed Quadracci Pavilion, completed in October 2001 and named by Time magazine “Best Design of 2001”; renovated and reinstalled permanent collection galleries; and elegant public gardens designed by noted landscape architect Dan Kiley. The Museum's 2001 expansion provided a 30 percent increase in overall gallery space, enhanced educational and public programming facilities, and expanded public amenities.
The Milwaukee Art Museum's far-reaching holdings include more than
20,000 works spanning antiquity to the present day.
With a history dating back to 1888, the Museum's primary strengths are in 19th- and 20th-century American and European art, contemporary art, American decorative arts, Old Master works, and folk and self-taught art.
The Museum is located in downtown Milwaukee, along the shore of Lake Michigan.
