I am so in love with this place! You absolutely cannot see everything in one visit; even if you could physically do it from morning until late afternoon it's still a LOT to absorb. I've been in love with the cultural streets and streets of Milwaukee since I was a kid. It's still one of my favorites.

We were greeted warmly, and given a map and information on the temporary exhibit and permanent collection when we entered. The survey of Wisconsin art Forward... new art by seemingly younger artists, was cool, and hung throu
