Milwaukee Art Museum is currently featuring an exhibit of Modern Rebels who were game changers in the world of fine arts. You’re probably familiar with most of them. A short list of the 68 master makers includes Frida, Pollock, Van Gogh, Picasso, Dalí, Miró, & Lichtenstein.
It’s so wonderful to walk through works from around 1900 to 1960, and view each piece as a stepping stone in the timeline until now. Strong vibes of surrealism, cubism, Fauvism, and abstraction all staring each other in the face. Such a powerhouse collection makes me wonder what collections will be circulation 100 years from now. Who will be the future rebels to revere for generations to come?

I wore a fun dress by WHIT. It only seemed fitting with the bold color and pattern mirrored in the art work. Take a look other inspiring WHIT pieces here. To push the tropical vibe further, I wore my Hawaiian print Roshe Runs. They’re no longer available, but you can grab the matching leggings on sale now. I topped it all off with a Dalí inspired melting watch from the Dalí Museum.

  1. I haven’t been to the Milwaukee Art Museum in several years, so thank you for sharing works of the rebels. I increased my appreciation for art with a visit to the Smithsonian in 2011 and 2012. It’s very different when you can stand face-to-face with a Picasso or a Rembrandt rather than looking at a picture in a magazine. I would encourage anyone to visit an art exhibit such as the one in Milwaukee when given a chance.

    By the way, I love your Nikes.

    • It really does change things with you get to see a work of art in person. It’s easy to forget that when information is so readily available with technology. Thank you so much for sharing your experience. I appreciate hearing from you!
