Creating Public Art with Kids
It was so much fun to work with the high school students at La Escuela Verde in Milwaukee's Silver City neighborhood to create a mosaic for a stairway located in Arlington Heights Park nearby their school! The Artists Working in Education Team leading the project included John Kowalczyk as Program Director, myself as Lead Artist, and Lucas Alamo as Assistant Artist. It was exciting that the work we did together was recognized with a 2018 Mayor's Design Award. The mosaic makes a great addition to the park and creates a point of interest for the community. You know I want to mosiac the wall near the staircase next!
