CUDAHY GARDENS / MILWAUKEE

Strong geometric patterns highlight the Cudahy Gardens located on the grounds of the Milwaukee Art Museum. Completed in tandem with the addition of the Santiago Calatrava designed Quadracci Pavilion, the Dan Kiley designed gardens prominently feature a curtain of water running from end to end.
Located directly in front of the museum's main entrance, the gardens act as an entryway for visitors. I stopped by on a sunny Memorial Day in 2016 to photograph the gardens for the first time. This came after weeks of driving by hoping to stop, only to find the fountains not yet on (perhaps too early in the day, or season). Even on this day, one of the fountain sections was not operational, but I went for it anyway. The gardens were a bit tough to capture for a photography novice, but not without fun. I bounced around from end to end for a solid 45 minutes to get enough shots to share. I love these gardens as a slightly under appreciated feature of Milwaukee, with the art museum drawing more eyes and attention in the background.
This is certainly not the last photo journal on the grounds of the Milwaukee Art Museum, so check back for more. We'll be back at our Bay View pop-up this week with our usual selection of everyday accessories and home goods.
