Highlights

  • We will arrive by noon to see the museum’s signature wings, the Burke Brise Soleil, form a moveable sunscreen with a 217-foot wingspan. The entire structure weighs 90 tons. It takes 3.5 minutes for the wings to open or close. According to architect, Santiago Calatrava, the Quadracci Pavilion’s design “responds to the culture of the lake: the sailboats, the weather, the sense of motion and change.
  • Four floors of over forty galleries of art are rotated regularly with works from antiquity to the present. The Museum also holds one of the largest collections of works by Wisconsin native Georgia O’Keeffe.
  • Important artists represented include Jean-Honoré Fragonard, Winslow Homer, Auguste Rodin, Edgar Degas, Claude Monet, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Pablo Picasso, Jóan Miro, Mark Rothko, and Andy Warhol.
