Art Institute

Sequence shows roof closing ...



Some pictures from inside ...



Downtown Riverwalk

Visited the Art Museum - which features a stunning wing-like addition by Santiago Calatrava ... a roof that 'flaps' (well, closes and opens once) each day at midday (and also closes automatically when wind speeds rise). Interesting and varied collection - see pictures for sample.

Later I walked along the Riverwalk - along the Milwaukee River downtown - and the Public Market (full of fine food stalls and juice bars etc).
