E is for Exceptional Beauty

Are you ready for another round of Alphabe Thursday? Let's go!

This week I'm featuring examples of exceptional beauty right here in the city of Milwaukee. No, not all of them are in the heart of the downtown, but it is amazing just how much beauty you can find in a very urban area. Enjoy.

I know that I come back to it often, but it's a classic.
Milwaukee Art Museum, September 2013

Milwaukee has a lot of beautiful old architecture.
