Video Interview

This building, the Milwaukee Art Museum was designed by the architect Santiago Calatrava and was built in Milwaukee in 2001. I used foam, wood, paper, and cardboard to recreate this building. I hope I can visit this building someday. It gets over 400,000 visitors a year from all over the world! Special Note from the Education Department: San Francisco area teacher Lance Alberti shared the inspiring work of his student, Rihana Guardado with us. She has been recognized as an honorary Junior Docent for the Milwaukee Art Museum in recognition for her tremendous work and interest in learning about the Milwaukee Art Museum. We hope you can come for a special in-person visit to the Museum with your family! Congratulations Junior Docent!
