I walk the Grohmann Museum’s galleries and climb the atrium’s spiral staircase for exercise when my schedule is tight, starting from the lower level and working my way up to the rooftop garden before taking the elevator back down to the basement and doing it all over again.
Set to house Milwaukee School of Engineering’s AI program, Diercks Hall will open this coming fall. As I reached the top of the staircase during my rounds yesterday, the bright colors of construction workers’ vests and the yellow/green material covering the walls (insulation? vapor barrier? something else???) caught my eye across the finally snow-free sculpture garden. A cheerful sign that progress was achieved during the cold, gray days of our Wisconsin winter—and a reminder that “slow and steady” wins the race, even when conditions are far from ideal.
Proof of which also includes my “Grohman workout,” now that I think about it 🙂
