The Spiral Staircase at Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra

The Spiral Staircase at Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra

Who doesn’t love a good spiral staircase? Even a well-done, one-story version.

Last week I shared some architectural Art Deco beauty from Milwaukee. Today, I’d like to share one feature of the new addition to the Warner Theater for the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra.

The addition

When we were on the Art Deco tour we stopped at the Warner Theater to talk about the building. As you view the marquee you can’t help but notice the new, more modern addition to the right. As a whole, it is referred to as the Bradley Symphony Center.

The oval skylight and spiral staircase caught my eye immediately as we peeked in the windows.

So, when I was heading back to my car at the end of the tour, I went inside. Fortunately, it was Open Doors Milwaukee that day. That meant I was able to go inside and wander, something you don’t typically get to do.

I’ve been itching to go through these images and edit a few. Here are a handful of black and white edits of the staircase.

And, here are a couple of color versions.

Back to Milwaukee

I’m really looking forward to getting back to Milwaukee in a week for another, completely different tour. If you are a photographer and interested in joining me on a photo tour there yourself, sign-up here to be notified of tour information.

And, as always if you are looking for fine art prints of these or any of my other work you can view my galleries or send contact me and I’ll be happy to help you.
