Description [edit]
The Milwaukee Art Museum's collection comprises more than 20,000 works of art from ancient to contemporary and is housed in a trio of unique structures from Eero Saarinen's 1950s building through a David Kahler section added in the 1970s and the Santiago Calatrava-designed Quadracci Pavilion.

The museum houses 15th to 20th century European and American paintings, sculptures, prints, drawings, photographs, decorative arts, folk art, Haitian art and outsider art.

MAM's cafe also offers great lunches in a luminous setting with lake views.

Lakefront Festival of Art

For over fifty years, the Lakefront Festival of Art has been bringing art to life on Milwaukee’s lakefront. Started in 1963, this three-day fund-raising event has evolved from a gathering of a handful of artists to a vibrant, exciting, and wide-ranging festival with something for everyone. With close to 25,000 attendees and over 170 jury-selected artists from across the nation, the Lakefront Festival of Art is a fun-filled destination with art, food, music, and activities for the whole family. What you find here may surprise you. Named one of the top twenty art festivals in the country, the Lakefront Festival of Art is a showcase of paintings, ceramics, fiber, metalwork, jewelry, and more, all available in a broad range of prices.
