This year to celebrate our anniversary and birthdays, we went to the Milwaukee Art Museum to see the Warhol exhibit: The Last Decade. We also went to Cafe Manna (will be in an upcoming post) and Penzey’s Spices in Brookfield, WI. I’ve wanted to check out the Milwaukee Art Museum ever since we moved to Chicagoland. Since they had the Warhol exhibit, we figured we better go now. I’m so glad we went. The building itself is one of the coolest buildings I’ve ever seen. It looks like something out of a futuristic movie. The interior did not disappoint either. The lake views were amazing. The staff at the museum were so friendly too.
We went to the Warhol exhibit first and it was great. They even had some “Piss Paintings”. I enjoyed seeing the Last Supper and Self Portrait art works. Then we went and explored the rest of the museum. I didn’t even know they had a sculpture and a painting by one of my favorite artists – Alberto Giacometti. I was thrilled! In the 20th Century Design section, they had a (Isamu) Noguchi coffee table. We had a good laugh over the fact we drove to Milwaukee to see the same coffee table we have in our family room. They had a lot of interesting and wonderful things at the Milwaukee Art Museum. Next year, I am going to bring my parents here when they come out to visit. I know they will really enjoy it and we’d like to see it again.
