The Wall

“I’m woven in a fantasy, I can’t believe the things I see. The path that I have chosen now has led me to a wall. And with each passing day I feel a little more like something dear was lost” –from The Wall by Kerry Livgren/Steve Walsh of Kansas.

If you ask someone in Milwaukee how to get to Windhover Hall you may get some blank looks.  If you ask how to get to the art museum or perhaps “that cool building with the wings”, they’ll know exactly how to direct you.

A beam of light marches down across a concrete wall and falls on a metal staircase landing.   The newly renovated Milwaukee Art Museum is a treasure trove of photographable textures, materials, shapes, and details.
