Whitney Gould took an early retirement buyout from Journal Communications a little over a month ago. Her send off column was titled “Retiring, not tiring of quality design.” Ever since moving to Milwaukee three years ago I’ve enjoyed her reporting on issues involving building design. My views began to disagree with hers when she started to question the restoration of the former check processing center on the corner of Broadway and State St into the Grohmann Museum, a museum dedicated to the showcasing of men (and women) at work throughout time, at the Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE). I began to wonder if she cared that the new Grohmann Museum would finally build a book-end for the MSOE campus with the Kern Center, rehab an underused and unattractive building downtown, and build a transition piece from Milwaukee City Hall north to the Kern Center and Park East neighborhood. Add to that the fact that the financing was entirely provided by Eckhart Grohmann. In fact Robert & Patricia Kern and Eckhart Grohmann deserve nothing but admiration and applause for their commitment to producing well-rounded engineers in downtown Milwaukee. To be fair, Whitney Gould does address some of the these facts and does give a fair amount of praise to Grohmann for his contribution. I do disagree with her on a few things though. Her appraisal of the building as a cheap impersonation of the style of a bygone era is lacking in insight. One needs to only walk from City Hall, past the Grohmann Museum, and to the Kern Center to see the bridge the museum forms between the past and present architectural styles. Unlike many other bland glass buildings in many other cities, Grohmann and the architects at Uihlein Wilson created something distinctly Milwaukee and distinctly MSOE. The building meshes perfectly with the Kern Center both inside and out thanks to Uihlein Wilson designing both buildings, and forms a southern book end of the MSOE campus on Broadway to match the Kern Center’s north anchor position. MSOE should be praised for finally developing a physical identity, especially while both Marquette and UWM expand theirs in a much more public fashion. She, along with other members of the art community, also seem to take offense that no one that works at the museum has true art credentials. Speaking as someone who has been in the museum many times, the artwork is displayed just as it in any museum and curator John Kopmeier is just as qualified to discuss the content of the collection as anyone with an art degree. My final point of disagreement with Gould is over her obsession with the Nazi art work in the collection. She seems to hold this belief that the Nazi-attachment to the artwork is hidden from viewers, it’s not. It is not outwardly stated that “hey, this painting could contain Nazi slaves”, but if you ask someone they will tell you. They will also tell you that the paintings featuring Egyptians might contain slaves […]Dec 22nd, 2007 by Jeramey Jannene
Governor Jim Doyle made a brief appearance at Milwaukee’s Amtrak station Friday, 11 June on the 75th anniversary of the Empire Builder, Amtrak’s service from Chicago to the Northwest coast. Before boarding the train, Doyle mixed the romance of the rails with the Great American Novel. “In the final passage of the Great Gatsby, the protagonist boarded the train we take today to return to his home in St. Paul,” Doyle told the crowd at the station. Sure enough, Nick Carraway, who found his personality to be “subtly unacceptable to Eastern life,” did hop on the rails to his midwest home at the end of the F. Scott Fitzgerald novel. Although the Governor’s literary allusions are a welcome change from previous administrations, his history is a bit weak, since Gatsby was published in 1925, some years before the Empire Builder got its name. Certainly railroad nuts will be able to tell us the name of the train Nick Carraway rode, and whether it, indeed passed through Milwaukee. There were plenty of the railroad aficionados at the event at the station, handing out buttons for the Wisconsin Association of Railroad Passengers and unveiling banners asking for increased passenger rail traffic hereabouts. The funny thing about rail fans, is they don’t seem to be the type who you would expect to travel anywhere by any means. They seem to be of the sort that just likes to stand at a station and watch the trains go by. Perhaps I’m wrong. Doyle was met at the station by David Gunn, the president of Amtrak since April 2002. Gunn has formerly run passenger rail systems including the Washington, D.C., the New York City and the Toronto, Ontario rail systems. These are probably the big three on the North American continent. I asked Gunn about the Amtrak Reform Council, the group headed by Paul Weyrich that once included our former mayor among its members. “Oh, they’re dead,” Gunn said. Sure enough, the reform council’s website, which listed “Hon.” John Norquist as a member seems to be inactive. The website was last updated in April 2002. So, apparently everything is fine with Amtrak. After the remarks, which caught some bona fide travelers off guard. (“Who are these men, and why are they giving us a speech?”), Gunn and the mayor hiked to the end of the platform where they entered Gunn’s private car, the “Beech Grove” for the trip. The governor was accompanied by Transportation Secretary Frank Busalacchi. As you remember, Busalacchi missed out on the groundbreaking for the Holton Marsupial Bridge a couple of weeks ago. Why? “Unfortunately, my schedule changed at the last minute and I was unable to attend the groundbreaking. I did have a representative from the Department attend the event in my place. I’m sure that you’ll have continued success in the implementation of this project.” Anyway, as Doyle boarded the platform at the rear of the train and waved to the non-existent crowd (there were cameras present) he said it […]Jun 14th, 2004 by Michael Horne
