#Perspectives Photo Contest Winner

Congratulations to John Clark for this stunning find from the shores of Lake Michigan! The futuristic view from the Milwaukee Art Museum is the winning entry of our #Perspectives Photo Contest. Congrats, John—enjoy your $1500 Expedia travel prize!

John Clark’s winning #Perspectives discovery from Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

One of the largest art museums in the United States, the Milwaukee Art Museum welcomes visitors with soaring ceilings and swooping lines designed by Santiago Calatrava. We’re mesmerized by John’s captivating perspective highlighting the grand scale and dynamic design of this gorgeous building. John notes “Inside the Milwaukee Art Museum is the magnificent cathedral-like space of Windhover Hall, with a vaulted 90-foot-high glass ceiling that overlooks the harbor entrance and Lake Michigan. Awash in white with marble flooring, this open area serves as the gateway to the Museum.” Thank you, John, for sharing this impressive architecture and your travel perspectives! Check out more of John’s finds and follow him on Trover to see where he heads next.
