An iconic art museum on the shores of Lake Michigan, this building is photographed daily, usually in bright sunlight and on a warm summer day. But I felt the museum lights coming on in the twilight as a winter storm approached was much more beautiful than a typical sunny day photo. The waves from the storm caused the ice at the edge of the lake to move about and to break up. The cracks in the ice leading the eye to the museum and its reflection in the icy water made for a very different image. My feet were cold as I stood there behind my tripod trying to get this shot, but it was worthwhile in capturing the museum on an icy Saturday evening.
Like many places open to the public, the Milwaukee Art Museum has had limited visits during this time of Covid-19. But it is opening again soon, and one will be able to visit again. Don't miss this Quadracci Pavilion created by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, his first project in the United States.
Just do not try to cross the ice trying to get there!
