August 6-13: 4th Annual Bronzeville Week with the Arts and Cultural Festival on August 6th, 10:00am – 6:00pm
Along with the Milwaukee Artist Resource Network and the Chicago Artist Coalition, I am co-organizing another MKE<->CHI regional poetics discussion at Chicago Artist Coalition on Wednesday, June 29 from 6-8pm.
I encourage you to walk Historic Mitchell Street this Saturday, June 18 starting at dusk for Temporary Resurfacing. Many artists who have engaged with MKE<->LAX residencies and programs are participating in this amazing outdoor multi-video projection event, including currently Los Angeles-based, formerly Milwaukee-based Mark Escribano, one of my dear core collaborators.
Please direct any questions to the Marquette contact!
:: A.D.H.D. ADVENTURES ::
June 3rd & 4th ::: 1pm-11pm
Artists Emmanuel Grant & Julian Miller, who create under the monikers Manny Vibe$ and Winter Fareaux Hiatus, have curated an exciting body of work for their latest show, A.D.H.D. Adventures. Enlisting several of their peers, the exhibition presents a broad range of pieces created through the lenses of young, minority artists. Drawing from influences of fine art, street art, illustration, comic books, cartoons, social media and pop-culture A.D.H.D. Adventures is a bright, imaginative show that immerses the viewer in the experience of the media-saturated millennial.
“We have gone through hard times, crazy times, unexpected times, and good times on our travels towards realizing our dreams. We harness the knowledge to deliver you all an experience!!”

The Riverwest Public House Cooperative, Greater Milwaukee Committee and MKE<->LAX present a conversation between Linda Pollack and Sara Daleiden, who both have practices based in Los Angeles that focus on the arts, the economy and cultural exchange. Linda and Sara will explore national tendencies with placemaking through major funders such as ArtPlace America’s Innovation Grants and the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA)’s Our Town Grants. Linda will share a Midwestern iteration of her project My Daily Constitution generated in Indianapolis as a case study of placemaking in extension of a public art dialogue. With My Daily Constitution, Linda generates an expressive public platform for conversation about democracy, where an active interpretation of the U.S. Constitution connects to the values of a local place.
