IN:SITE ART – As the September issue of the Currents goes to press, a week of events celebrating the temporary art project in the
Park East Corridor is running from Aug 23-30. This unique and creative use of public art is open for public viewing at 11 IN:SITE art
installations covering a 16 block area. The project was created to foster temporary publi cart in Milwaukee and make use of the Park East space. Project chair Pegi Christiansen said, “Thanks to the support of the Milwaukee Arts Board, stakeholders have provided thirteen local artists the opportunity to create installations that invite people to explore the Park East.” The Arts Board unanimously voted to award artist stipends for the work and a number of special events held throughout August have helped to showcase the project.
