  • Patrick and Beatrice Haggerty Museum of Art Patrick and Beatrice Haggerty Museum of Art Milwaukee, Wisconsin
    The Patrick and Beatrice Haggerty Museum of Art or preferably the Haggerty is located on the campus of Marquette University in downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin and opened in 1984, with a unique mural painted on the site by American artist and social activist Keith Haring, which was called "On the Fence". The museum was made possible by a donation from the alumnus and co-founder of Texas Instruments, Inc. Patrick E. Haggerty and his wife, Beatrice; which is why the name of the museum is after them. The couple gave a marvelous art collection to begin the museum; with another alumnus, David E. Straz, Jr. There is a magnificent permanent collection of more than 4500 sculptures, photographs, other visual art pieces and paintings; with some of the more famous being; Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux did Figaro in 1873, Salvador Dali's Madonna of Port Lligat from 1948 as well as a portfolio of his Zodiac series with the number 32 of 50 made, Gustave Caillebote's La Machine de Marly from 1875, Andy Warhol's Marilyn from 1967, Liz from 1964, New England Clam Chowder and Tomato Beef Noodle-Os, Marc Chagall's set of 105 colored etchings called the Bible Series, Otto Dix's From the Catacombs in Palermo in 1923-4, Jacques Villon's Matemite from 1948 and Prometheus Liberated from his Chains from 1956, Pieter Claeissens' Madonna and Child from 1550, Giles Mostaert's Entry in Jerusalem, Henri Toulouse-Lautrec's Divan Japonais from 1892-3, Jacob Lawrence's Birth from 1948, Roy Lichenstein, Carle van Loo's The Resurrection (La resurrection du Christ) from 1734, Francesco Trevisiani's Saint Peter in Penitence and Nicolaes Maes' Portrait of Three Children as Ceres, Ganymede and Diana from 1673.

There are two local high schools that enjoy a wonderful relationship with the museum's programs in visual arts and these are; the Pius XI High School and the Milwaukee High School of the Arts. It also host many fine and outstanding events like the Pius Annual Fine Arts Festival, and the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design occasionally hosts on-site discussions; and the museum hosts art discussions and poetry readings quite often, a thoroughly enjoyable time for the residents of the city. The museum's collection actually began in the 19th century with a marvelous gift by Wilhelm Lamprecht who gave Pere Marquette and the Indians to the collection in 1869 that honored the life of Rev. Jacques Marquette, who was the first French Jesuit explorer of the midwest land's and the university's namesake. In the late 1950s, Marc B. Rojtman and his wife, Lillian donated a number of old masters' paintings, and the collection continued to grow in spurts until the magnanimous gift of the Haggertys.

  • Milwaukee Art MuseumMilwaukee Art Museum Milwaukee, Wisconsin
    The Milwaukee Art Museum (MAM) sits next to Lake Michigan in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and is home to more than 25,000 artworks, with a fantastic collection of old masters, 19th and 20thcenturies works; plus the country's best collection of German Expressionism, folk and Haitian art, post-1960 American art and American decorative arts. Sometime in 1872, there were a number of organizations in the city that wanted to have a major art gallery where they could have a place to keep their prized artworks and display them to the public for their enjoyment and benefit as well. For the next nine years, every attempt somehow managed to fail, until 1881, with some exhibitions being held at the Milwaukee Exposition Hall, where all important public events were held at the time. Just a short time after that exhibit, Alexander Mitchell gave all her collection to become the first part of the city's first gallery that would be constructed in the city. In 1882, the Milwaukee Museum of Fine Arts was started, but then was closed six years afterwards. Then, in 1888, the Milwaukee Art Association was started by a group of German panorama artists and area businessmen, their first home being the Layton Art Gallery. In 1911, the Milwaukee Art Institute was constructed next to it, and the Milwaukee Art Center (which is now the Milwaukee Art Museum) was created when the Milwaukee Art Institute and the Layton Art Gallery merged their collections in 1957, and then moved into a three story building that was located underneath the Eero Saarinen designed Milwaukee County War Memorial. The museum has a great number of art by Georgia O'Keefe, and the German Expressionist, Gabriele Munter.  The museum received some international recognition a while back when they built a huge white concrete addition called the Quadracci Pavilion, that was the first completed work by Santiago Calatrava in 2001. This unique structure has a movable, wing-like brise soleil that opens to unveil a huge wingspan of 217 in the daytime, that folds over the arched building at night or in bad weather. It has become a symbol for the city and its new ideas and ambitions for the future. There is a gallery dedicated to temporary exhibits, a museum store and the restaurant, Cafe Calatrava.
