Milwaukee Art Museum (MAM)

'The Milwaukee Art Museum'

Julienne and I took a road trip up to Milwaukee on an amazing beautiful day this past Saturday to see the Masters of American Comics exhibition.

'Masters of American Comics Show'

The show was good, but couldn't live up to the hype I heard prior to visiting. A great collection of original works that was inspiring to see, but the exhibit didn't do as good a job explaining how these artists related. It was nice to see a variety of folks, both young and old, enjoying the show though. And it was important to see the original 'Meatball' strip by R. Crumb. For some reason, that played an significant part of my high school experience in New Orleans.

'I love this place'

We have to go back, because I love this building. Maybe it was the gorgeous day, but there didn't seem to be a bad angle on the place. Even the garage was a soothing, lovely environment.

Julienne took advantage of the weather when I took a second look at the exhibit after lunch in the cafe.

'The Burke Brise Soleil closing'

We got there just in time to see the closing and opening of the Burke Brise Soleil. We were on a theme weekend having just seen the Cirque du Soleil show, Corteo, the night before.

A way cool building indeed. Worth the drive to Milwaukee alone. I just recently learned that it takes $50,000/year to clean the windows--and that's just on the inside!
