Architect Jim Shields envisioned and designed a new wedge shaped Museum of Wisconsin Art to occupy a wedge shaped property located in West Bend, WI.  The museum’s vision espouses innovation, technology and social connectivity with focus on the art.  The new museum celebrated its grand opening on April 7 of this year.
