Help us spread the word! The Milwaukee Public Library recently released a Request For Qualifications for an exterior public art project at the new East Branch. Artist portfolios are due December 9th!
From the request:
The entrance to the new library will be on Cramer Street, just north of North Avenue. A unique triangular shaped piazza provides opportunities for creative work that invites artists to explore the nature of literature, community and culture. Viewed as a "canvas" for artistic interpretation, we envision adding art that activates the space so visitors' experiences begin before entering the building. We are seeking an inspiring and creative work that reflects on the ideas of community, literature, story, and learning. The work should invite discussion and interactions by those who live, work, and play in this unique part of our city. We imagine the piece as a beacon for the library and for all it offers and represents.
