By Franz Schulze
In 2001 the Milwaukee Art Museum inaugurated a spectacular new addition, the Quadracci Pavilion, designed by world-renowned architect Santiago Calatrava. Internationally recognized architectural historian Franz Schulze examines the launch of this ambitious project and the architect's stunning accomplishment. In addition, the museum's curators along with outside scholars have carefully explicated 166 works of art that meaningfully demonstrate what the museum has accomplished. Works of art from antiquity to the present are each represented by a full-color reproduction and carefully researched, lively text. The wealth of Renaissance decorative arts, the European and American art collections, works on paper, photography, and folk and outsider objects, present a broad spectrum of the history of art.
