This mobile by Calder graces the main entry.

The current show in the Calatrava exhibit space features affiches, or posters, from Paris near the turn of the 20th century. It is a fabulous show, well worth the price of admission.

One of the most popular photos taken in the Calatrava, with the large windows facing Lake Michigan.

Looking straight up at the wings.

North wing seen through the glass ceiling.

South wing. They mechanically open and close. Maintenance nightmare.

Looking straight up again, you can see the wings spread out above the building.

Open pavilion area under the wings.

Looking out through the reflection of the ceiling on the window, to the south.

Just outside, a nice wide walkway winds along the Lake Michigan shoreline all the way from nearly the UW-Milwaukee campus on the upper east side to downtown Milwaukee and the Summerfest grounds.

The same architectural elements continue into the basement parking structure, caught here in my rearview mirror on the way out.
