Museum of Glass

Although the exhibits at the Madison Contemporary Art Museum are off-limits to photography, its signature 3-story glass window façade provided some photo opportunities. The stairs of this glass section lead visitors to the free museum's two main galleries as well as a restaurant. It also provides a great view of State Street. 
I especially enjoyed the "Turn, Turn, Turn" exhibition featuring art related to the poetry of the Old Testament Ecclesiastes 3, such as those by Thomas Hart Benton and Kathe Kollwitz. A smaller gallery housed the exhibition "Los Grandes del Arte Moderno Mexico" which included several pieces by greats of Mexican art such as Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, and José Clemente Orozco.
