Join us to learn more about our mural project over a delicious lunch at UMOS (United Migrant Opportunity Services). Hear from UMOS and the artists themselves about how this community mural project has taken shape over the past year. Proceeds will go towards the installation and unveiling of the mural.
If you'd rather pay for tickets by check (payable to: "ArtWorks for Milwaukee" for the Culture Work Mural Project), you can send it to:
More information about the "Culture Work" UMOS mural project:
Culture Work will be installed in May 2017 on the Butters Fetting building on 1st and Mitchell. Lead artist Raoul Deal worked with high school interns and students from UWM's Community Arts program to complete the large-scale work chronicling the 50-year history of UMOS and the fight for access to higher education for Latino students.
The high school interns worked on the mural through paid internships through ArtWorks for Milwaukee. The interns are learning transferable job skills such as communication and collaboration as well as professional skills such as resume writing and job interview skills.
