Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE) - Art Exhibitions and Rooftop Sculpture Gardens at the Grohmann Museum

Top of the Grohmann Museum at MSOE has a rooftop sculpture garden with
a great view of the downtown - Here's a blurb from the Grohmann Museum's website: 
"A dozen large, bronze sculptures – men toiling in the field and foundry, heaving hammers or pinching molten metal with hot tongs – perch on the roof line of the Grohmann Museum. These fellows, each about 9 feet tall and weighing in at a thousand pounds a piece, have a commanding view of a city that was built on the hard work they depict. The commissioned sculptures, replicas of smaller bronzes in the collection, were fabricated in the Philippines through a process called lost-foam casting that transformed them from their original size of about 19-inches to larger-than-life scale.

Entrance to the Art Exhibit "Man At Work" (apologies for not noting the
names of the painters whose works are shown here. I photographed them
at the same time that I shot the work, but they are too blurry to read!)

Good to see Bob out & about and with Jessica! Love the architecture in the Bay View neighborhood of Wisconsin. Rosemary, nice job behind the lens!
