Milwaukee Art Museum, 700 N. Art Museum Drive, Milwaukee. It features
set designs, drawings, photographs, posters, and more from masterworks
of German Expressionist cinema. Filmmakers employed geometrically
distorted set designs, dramatic lighting, off-kilter framing, strong
shadows and distorted perspectives to express a sense of uneasiness

of World War I. They
continue to inspire contemporary filmmakers, including Tim Burton and
Martin Scorsese. Mam.org, 414-224-3200.
