About Me

Tired of the mundane and craving an adventure, on Saturday, May 22nd, 2010, I embarked on the ultimate American road trip through all fifty states. After nearly a year and a half on the road, on a budget of less than 50 bucks a day, this is my story...

Milwaukee Art Museum - Thursday, June 10, 2010


Thursday, June 10, 2010

Yes MAM! (Milwaukee Art Museum, lol)

"Experiencing the works of art at the Milwaukee Art Museum begins long before you walk through the doors. As you approach via a pedestrian bridge, you see the 90-foot-high glass-walled reception hall capped by a stunning white cone composed of 72 steel finds that unfurl into wings stretching more than 200 feet from tip to tip. Situated on the shores of Lake Michigan in downtown Milwaukee, the enormous moving sculpture looks like a gull taking flight."

I arrived at the museum around 5pm on a Thursday, after working a very early shift. Like many museums it is open late on Thursdays. Unlike many museums, if you arrive at or after 5pm it is not free admission. Unlike many people who travel [FOUR! - I got lost, lol] hours to see it, I walked in like I owned the place, and created my own free admission.
