Sitting on the shore of Lake Michigan, the spectacular Quadracci Pavilion, designed by Santiago Calatrava, the Milwaukee Museum of Art features a 90-foot high glass-walled reception hall enclosed by a whale-rib-like sunscreen that can be raised or lowered turning the entire building into a wing-like moving sculpture. Even better, the museum houses a significant folk, self-taught, outsider art collection, with many of the works generously donated by Michael and Julie Hall and Anthony Petullo. Here you will find Wolfli, Taylor, Tolson, and so many others.

Best yet – we were given a behind the scenes tour (last part of the Kohler Conference) of the jaw-dropping Martin Ramirez exhibit (more than a week before it had opened to the public), with the curator herself, Brooke Davis Anderson, the director/curator of The Contemporary Center, American Folk Art Museum, in New York, with comments from Phyllis Kind, an early proponent of Ramirez?s work. If you can?t be there in person, check out the exhibit on YouTube.
