It's part of a modified KC135R. It's used for testing icing conditions on planes in flight.

So apparently that is a use. My encounter with it was for an airborne de-icing experiment.

It's all yours.

Does it have anything to do with wind?

Only if there's one blowing. I would imagine that it would be windy there on the water.

In other words, it doesn't specifically depend on the wind, and it isn't used for anything regarding the wind.

This is an unusual angle to see this item from. You'll typically see it from a 90* difference in pictures.

It almost looks like some kind of outdoor movie screen. Whatever it is, it is interesting.

Is it some manner of bridge?

Or does it have anything to do with the Milwaukee Art Museum?

It is nowhere near the Milwaukee Art Museum (same continent), is not a bridge or any form thereof, and I guess you could project movies on it, but it's not an outdoor movie screen and never was intended to be such.
