Bronzeville Autumn is our second season of art and wellness programs for the Bronzeville Cultural and Entertainment District which included Art House Trap. Bronzeville Autumn is an initiative of CUPED Corporation, Jazale’s Art Studio, Friends of Bronzeville and MKE<->LAX, in collaboration with the City of Milwaukee and Alderwoman Milele Coggs. This season follows the successful launch of #BronzevilleSummer that included the 4th Annual Jazz in the Hood at Garfield School Cultural Campus, the 4th Annual Bronzeville Week, 19th Annual Garfield Blues, Jazz, Gospel and Arts Festival, and Juneteenth Day Parade and Street Festival, as well as performances, exhibitions and youth arts workshops at Jazale’s Art Studio.

Through Bronzeville Autumn, we are continuing the work that has gone into bringing together culture, history, art, commerce, and community rooted in this rich urban tradition of the Bronzeville Cultural and Entertainment District. In collaboration with many community partners, this multifaceted series focuses on art and wellness featuring performances, installations and workshops by local artists, food and crafts with local vendors, health and wellness awareness activities, and community meals. Kickstarted November 5, programs are open to the public and free, with activities for youth and adults.

Support for Bronzeville Autumn is generously provided by the Greater Milwaukee Foundation through the Marvin W. Haesle Fund for the Arts, the Patricia Ray Howell Fund, and the Martin Luther King Memorial Fund; Crescent Cardboard Co, LLC; Bader Philanthropies; and Boys & Girls Club of Greater Milwaukee.

#BronzevilleSummer: Our Milwaukee Experience is an inaugural series in the Bronzeville Cultural and Entertainment District presented by Friends of Bronzeville in collaboration with City of Milwaukee, Ald. Milele Coggs, Jazale’s Art Studio, CUPED Corporation, and MKE<->LAX. As a way to connect large community events already happening in the district (Juneteenth, Garfield Days Festival, Jazz in the Hood, Jazale’s Art Studio Youth Programs and Cultural Events, and Bronzeville Week), #BronzevilleSummer is the umbrella that brings it all together under a unified vision. This public program series will celebrate African-American culture by focusing on local creative entrepreneurial talent with art performances and installations, markets for youth and adults including a business summit, and health, wellness and housing resources.
In connection with our #BronzevilleSummer and in honor of African American Bone Marrow Awareness month, we welcome having you shake it with us soon…

A performance by Katie Loughmiller
Saturday, June 25th at 7pm

2201 N Dr MLK Drive

Milwaukee, WI 53212
 

perception. by Boston-based artist, Katie Loughmiller, explores 21st century notions of identity, origin, and labelling. It is a performance in three parts exploring how we perceive others and ourselves in terms of the racial/ethnic “boxes” that have been created over time.

To date, perception. has been performed twice. First at Little House Gallery in Los Angeles, CA and at Gwarlingo Salon in conjunction with 24 Blackbird in Harrisville, NH. It is scheduled to be performed in New York City at Hot Wood Arts Center in Red Hook, Brooklyn in July.

 

perception. will begin promptly at 7:00pm and runs about 30 minutes long. An informal dialogue will follow immediately after.

 

Katie Loughmiller is an interdisciplinary artist exploring storytelling through performance, writing and video. Loughmiller is particularly interested in conversational dialogue and stories centered around cultural complexity and female identity. Loughmiller received her undergraduate degree at the Gallatin School of Individualized Study at New York University and completed her Master of Fine Arts degree in the Public Practice program at Otis College of Art & Design. Loughmiller and her participatory performance piece, “Perform With Me” was featured on Ear Meal, a live streaming and archived webcast platform based in Los Angeles. Loughmiller has performed her most current performance piece perception. in Los Angeles, New Hampshire and will soon perform it in Milwaukee and New York City. Loughmiller has been an artist in residence at Atlantic Center for the Arts, Vermont Studio Center, Wildacres Residency Program and is currently an artist in residence at MKE<->LAX.
