Warhol, and Lichtenstein, and Chihuly, Oh My!

Hello There! 
Can you think of anything better than a day off, an art museum to explore, and a sun flooded mezzanine?
Well, a dirty chai beforehand might make that all the better!Beautyosuaurs Lex-Alex Good-Lifestyle Blog-Milwaukee Art Museum-Gap Jeans-J.Crew-Sweater-Stripes-Loafers-Winter

With satisfied bellies, and buzzing from the coffee, we scooted to one of our most beloved, and newly renovated, places; The Milwaukee Art Museum.

An adventure worth taking during every season, but something about the brazen architecture against a snowy backdrop is particularly enticing. Beautyosuaurs Lex-Alex Good-Lifestyle Blog-Milwaukee Art Museum-Gap Jeans-J.Crew-Sweater-Stripes-Loafers-Winter
After far too long of being closed for renovations, the museum has reopened and boy was it worth the wait! Uncrated is their gift to the city, an alluring remodel that just begs for you to roam through and get lost in new galleries. 

Be sure to pop in on the first Friday of the month when they offer up free admission. Don't let the long lines discourage you though, they move quickly and you'll be gazing at all of your old favorites, and a few new ones, in no time.Beautyosuaurs Lex-Alex Good-Lifestyle Blog-Milwaukee Art Museum-Gap Jeans-J.Crew-Sweater-Stripes-Loafers-WinterBeautyosuaurs Lex-Alex Good-Lifestyle Blog-Milwaukee Art Museum-Gap Jeans-J.Crew-Sweater-Stripes-Loafers-Winter
Straight out of the gate I gravitated to the modern art gallery. Licthenstein, Warhol and other rebels geniuses of their time. Beautyosuaurs Lex-Alex Good-Lifestyle Blog-Milwaukee Art Museum-Gap Jeans-J.Crew-Sweater-Stripes-Loafers-WinterBeautyosuaurs Lex-Alex Good-Lifestyle Blog-Milwaukee Art Museum-Gap Jeans-J.Crew-Sweater-Stripes-Loafers-WinterBeautyosuaurs Lex-Alex Good-Lifestyle Blog-Milwaukee Art Museum-Gap Jeans-J.Crew-Sweater-Stripes-Loafers-WinterBeautyosuaurs Lex-Alex Good-Lifestyle Blog-Milwaukee Art Museum-Gap Jeans-J.Crew-Sweater-Stripes-Loafers-WinterBeautyosuaurs Lex-Alex Good-Lifestyle Blog-Milwaukee Art Museum-Gap Jeans-J.Crew-Sweater-Stripes-Loafers-WinterBeautyosuaurs Lex-Alex Good-Lifestyle Blog-Milwaukee Art Museum-Gap Jeans-J.Crew-Sweater-Stripes-Loafers-Winter

Naturally, I wound up cooing over the pieces that included man's best friend.

Whilst the masses stood mesmerized by the renaissance pieces, the mister and I tiptoed to the top level and became bewitched by color.
Vivid, loud, and far from subtle: just the way I take my art.Beautyosuaurs Lex-Alex Good-Lifestyle Blog-Milwaukee Art Museum-Gap Jeans-J.Crew-Sweater-Stripes-Loafers-WinterBeautyosuaurs Lex-Alex Good-Lifestyle Blog-Milwaukee Art Museum-Gap Jeans-J.Crew-Sweater-Stripes-Loafers-WinterBeautyosuaurs Lex-Alex Good-Lifestyle Blog-Milwaukee Art Museum-Gap Jeans-J.Crew-Sweater-Stripes-Loafers-WinterBeautyosuaurs Lex-Alex Good-Lifestyle Blog-Milwaukee Art Museum-Gap Jeans-J.Crew-Sweater-Stripes-Loafers-WinterBeautyosuaurs Lex-Alex Good-Lifestyle Blog-Milwaukee Art Museum-Gap Jeans-J.Crew-Sweater-Stripes-Loafers-Winter
Amongst the golden light and energetic artwork is a small haven that boasts 16 foot, floor to ceiling views and a modern lounge perfect for stretching out in, all while still appreciating the pieces.Beautyosuaurs Lex-Alex Good-Lifestyle Blog-Milwaukee Art Museum-Gap Jeans-J.Crew-Sweater-Stripes-Loafers-Winter
So, when can I move in? I already know just the spot to put our bed!Beautyosuaurs Lex-Alex Good-Lifestyle Blog-Milwaukee Art Museum-Gap Jeans-J.Crew-Sweater-Stripes-Loafers-WinterBeautyosuaurs Lex-Alex Good-Lifestyle Blog-Milwaukee Art Museum-Gap Jeans-J.Crew-Sweater-Stripes-Loafers-Winter
Be sure to pop into the Sam Francis: Master Printmaker exhibit. Off the main drag, an enrapturing space yet surprisingly vacant.Beautyosuaurs Lex-Alex Good-Lifestyle Blog-Milwaukee Art Museum-Gap Jeans-J.Crew-Sweater-Stripes-Loafers-Winter
What a dream: is there anything more tranquil than a Georgia O'Keefe exhibit all to yourself?Beautyosuaurs Lex-Alex Good-Lifestyle Blog-Milwaukee Art Museum-Gap Jeans-J.Crew-Sweater-Stripes-Loafers-WinterBeautyosuaurs Lex-Alex Good-Lifestyle Blog-Milwaukee Art Museum-Gap Jeans-J.Crew-Sweater-Stripes-Loafers-Winter
Just when I was needing an afternoon pick-me-up, I spotted these: an 18 carat gold Tiffany tea set. Dainty, demure, and most certainly not brewing up tea anytime soon.Beautyosuaurs Lex-Alex Good-Lifestyle Blog-Milwaukee Art Museum-Gap Jeans-J.Crew-Sweater-Stripes-Loafers-Winter
A constellation installation with a delicately painted teacup encased. I'm a bit of a star and vintage teacup enthusiast, if I do say so myself. Beautyosuaurs Lex-Alex Good-Lifestyle Blog-Milwaukee Art Museum-Gap Jeans-J.Crew-Sweater-Stripes-Loafers-WinterBeautyosuaurs Lex-Alex Good-Lifestyle Blog-Milwaukee Art Museum-Gap Jeans-J.Crew-Sweater-Stripes-Loafers-Winter
We whispered like dutiful observers and paid homage to one of our favorite pieces, Dale Chihuly's Isola di San Giacomo in Palude Chandelier II. The most perfect farewell piece for our museum adventure.Beautyosuaurs Lex-Alex Good-Lifestyle Blog-Milwaukee Art Museum-Gap Jeans-J.Crew-Sweater-Stripes-Loafers-WinterBeautyosuaurs Lex-Alex Good-Lifestyle Blog-Milwaukee Art Museum-Gap Jeans-J.Crew-Sweater-Stripes-Loafers-Winter
We sluggishly bundled back up to face the brisk day, and were pleasantly chuffed when it was the sun that greeted us instead of snowflakes.

I highly recommend an outing to the new and improved art museum. Whisk your loved one, your mom, your partner in crime, whomever, away for the day to enjoy some architecture, sunshine and above all, art.
