A Great Year for the Milwaukee Art Museum

The Milwaukee Art Museum had a great year in 2011, and the exhibit “Frank Lloyd Wright: Organic Architecture for the 21st Century” was part of it.

All three of the major exhibitions at the museum in 2011 attracted more than 100,000 visitors.

The latest was “Impressionism: Masterworks on Paper,” which ran from Oct. 14 to Jan. 8. Museum spokeswoman Kristin Settle said more than 103,000 visited it.

She said museum attendance has exceeded 100,000 for the four of their last five exhibitions since the summer of 2010 — the first time in museum history.

The other more popular ones were the “Summer of China” exhibitions, “Frank Lloyd Wright: Organic Architecture for the 21st Century” and “American Quilts.”
