“Sculpture Milwaukee” artworks in downtown all turn seasonal

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – Sculpture Milwaukee offers a lot to see in the downtown area, and now you have more time to see it. The current exhibition entitled “There is this us” will remain visible until the fall of 2022.

“There is this us” is the line from a poem by Gwendolyn Brooks, the first black poet to receive a Pulitzer Prize.

The general theme itself is to initiate social change through the imagination. Guest curators Theaster Gates and Michelle Grabner helped direct this particular installation.

“All great art asks more questions than it answers. Our greatest hope is that works of art will arouse people’s curiosity and enthusiasm. This is an opportunity to explore some of the contemporary issues we all face, ”said Meg Strobel, Director of Community Engagement. for Sculpture Milwaukee.

“Sculpture Milwaukee” spans two miles of sidewalks and public and private spaces in downtown Milwaukee and the Third Historic District.
