    What is the background of the chap who wrote the “review” of the new MAM galleries? Let’s have something by local artist and architectural critic, Tom Bamberger. And at last, a genuine area for showcasing photographs, etc~

  2. Mr. Michael Horne says:

    This is a news story and does not claim to be a review. It is also a very good news story by a skilled UWM student.

  3. your review encouraged me to put “going to the art museum” on my activity list!

    I think its a fine story written quite well. What a weird comment from Judith??? My only issue is that I would love more pictures of the addition. The ones posted are quite lovely and it would be nice to see more! Guess I’ll have to go see for myself 🙂

    Yeah, what the hell? It was a fine article about the renovation; gives a good overview. Makes me want to go see it.

    Finally, the “museum” portion of MAM is up to the standard of the “entrance.” I think the addition to the east end does a spectacular job interweaving the interior and exterior. It’s almost Miesian. Better job capitalizing on the lakefront than the rather simple Khaler expansion, and a swell idea (if a little commercial) putting in a coffee shop by the new entrance.

    All in all, this is exactly what we needed to make the art museum the appealing cultural centerpiece of the Lakefront Gateway. Not that it wasnt already . . .

    Especially since reading your article, I can’t wait to see the new MAM addition!
