Downtown Milwaukee getting new public art

0

MILWAUKEE – Visitors to Milwaukee have remarked at the vast beauty that is the Calatrava design at the Milwaukee Art Museum, and now Santiago Calatrava is bringing more art to the scene this summer.

According to OnMilwaukee.com,

Starting June 1, Sculpture Milwaukee, an outdoor urban sculpture exhibit free to the public, will be on display down Wisconsin Avenue from 6th Street to O’Donnell Park, featuring 22 wide-ranging sculptures by 21 artists including Tony Cragg, Joel Shapiro, Alison Saar, Jessica Stockholder and, Milwaukee old’s friend, Santiago Calatrava. Three Milwaukee-based artists – Michelle Grabner, Jason S. Yi and Paul Druecke – will also be among the pieces lining one of Downtown Milwaukee’s main drags.

For those with the expendable income for a fancy new lawn ornament or conversation piece, the sculptures included will be available for purchase, with a percentage of the commission reinvested into continuing Sculpture Milwaukee into the future.
