I was in Milwaukee visiting my son, Ellis who attends MIAD (Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design) this weekend with my twin daughters, Lucy and Willa and our friend, Jen. Milwaukee has the vibe and friendliness of the prairie and the undeniable spirit of an American city that still makes stuff. Here are a few of the highlights of our trip. I always appreciate the shift in perspective when you get out of town for a few days. Travel always makes me want to explore my own city more when I get home. I like that.
HARLEY DAVIDSON MUSEUM
This is a rust-encrusted Harley-Davidson motorcycle that was swept away by the Japan tsunami in March 2011 was found by Peter Mark in April, washed up on an island off the coast of British Columbia. We got to see it at the Harley Davidson Museum in Milwaukee this weekend. What a remarkably well designed museum. If you ever find yourself in that neck of the woods. It is well worth your time.
