Milwaukee Art Museum proposes fixes to War Memorial
The east end of the David Kahler addition to the Milwaukee Art Museum, part of the War Memorial complex, is one of the leakiest areas of the museum. The windows are fogged over from water damage and the wood floor is damaged along the curtain wall. The building has been modified significantly since it opened. This is where the museum plans to build an 8,000-square-foot addition, designed by Milwaukee architect, Jim Shields, of HGA Architects and Engineers. Image by Mark Hoffman
The Milwaukee Art Museum has unveiled a proposed $15 million project that includes a plan to help restore the War Memorial Center and create a glassy new addition on the lakefront, an urban park and dramatic redesign of its galleries.
