The Milwaukee Art Museum has experienced something of a rebirth in the past few years, which may be in no small part due to the addition of a new building named the Quadracci Pavilion, designed by the well-regarded Spanish architect, Santiago Calatrava. To start, the Museum has placed a selection of different artworks on display here on their Web site, organized under the thematic divisions that are common to many art museums, such as early European art and photography. Along with these selections, more practical information about the cost of admission, upcoming exhibits, and hours can also be found from the site's main page. A highlight of the site is certainly the online exhibit dedicated to the ground breaking work of long-time Milwaukee industrial designer Brooks Stevens. Here, visitors can view detailed images of some of his most famous designs, which include the Miller Brewing logo, the Evinrude outboard motor, and the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile. For those looking to learn more about the feel and appearance of the Quadracci Pavilion (which opened in 2001), a photo gallery featuring the building from many different of angles and perspectives will be an integral part of their visit to the Web site.
