About the Museum
With a collection dating to 1888, the Milwaukee Art Museum today holds more than 25,000 works that span antiquity to the present day. The museum boasts particularly fine collections of American decorative arts; German Expressionist prints and paintings; folk and Haitian art; and American art after 1960. Artists featured in the collection include Jean-Honoré Fragonard, Winslow Homer, Pablo Picasso, Mark Rothko and Andy Warhol and the museum holds one of the largest collections of works by Georgia O’Keeffe in the world. The museum's 341,000 sq-ft complex also provides architectural delights, notably the War Memorial Center by Eero Saarinen from 1957 and the stunning, sculptural 2001 Quadracci Pavilion, designed by Santiago Calatrava.
