MILWAUKEE -- The rough winter has not been kind to the Milwaukee Art Museum.

Daniel Keegan, the museum's director, told TODAY'S TMJ4 that floors are buckling and the roof and walls are leaking. 

Billions of dollars worth of art is at risk, he said.

Last year an agreement with the War Memorial Center was reached, moving plans for repairs forward. 

Work will not begin until next September, leaving the artwork in harms way.
