Unveiling the Finished Mural

We did it!!! It was a wonderful experience working with fellow artist, Gabriela Riveros, the students of Escuela Verde Milwaukee, and Ali Carlucci of Artists Working in Education, Inc. on this public art project. This mural has been and will continue to be a great way to research, talk about, and understand immigration and the role it plays in how civilizations change and evolve–culturally, technologically, and economically. It also serves as a beacon for the arts as not only integral–but a leader for how we think, feel, and take action.

Thank you to everyone who came to our mural celebration today, and to all the students, organizers, and community partners who made this project a success. For those of you who weren’t able to make it, you can view the mural at 35th and Pierce Street in Milwaukee and continue to learn more about the project on this website.

The driving force of this mural was collecting and researching our shared migration stories, so please, share your stories (and pictures!) with us as well! Keep in touch. ‪#‎MigrationStory‬‪#‎MyMigrationStory‬ ‪#‎community‬ ‪#‎Milwaukee‬
