Brief history lesson

The area now known as Wisconsin was first inhabited by various Native American tribes like the Chippewa, Menominee, Oneida, Potawatomi and Winnebago tribes who lived in the area until the late 1800s. In 1763, Wisconsin was part of the territory ceded by France to Great Britain in the Treaty of Paris. Twenty years later, again in Paris, the British relinquished their claim to Wisconsin and it officially became a part of the United States of America. This colourful history can be felt in Wisconsin posters which depict its two most famous and biggest cities. All over these two locations, there are historic reminders and sights that pay tribute to state's massive experiences, both positive and negative. With Wisconsin posters, you can have a reminder of this history and also a motivator to someday perhaps explore this beautiful state in the US.

The Brew City in Wisconsin posters

The first explorers of the Milwaukee area referred to it by various names, all of which borrowed from Native American titles that meant something along the lines of “good land” or “rich and beautiful land.” Milwaukee’s roots as a beer- happy city can be traced back to the influx of German immigrants in the mid 19th century who came seeking cheap land and refuge from a divided mother country. Maybe you can spot this Germanic influence in Wisconsin posters like Milwaukee Wisconsin Skyline. You will certainly see the most recognizable building in the entire city, the Milwaukee Art Museum. Designed by Santiago Calatrava in the early 1990s, the museum recognized the technical advances in architecture to its fullest. Calatrava exceeded expectations with retractable sun screens in the form of two large wings that open and close in accordance with the museum’s hours!
