Over the course of eight weeks apprentice artists will take on the role of artists, activists, and researchers as they collaborate, strategize, organize, and publicize an art piece that aims to celebrate communities that care.
Through a program called ArtWorks for Milwaukee, in collaboration with Safe & Sound, eight young artist will be working together to create an art piece that illustrates the vibrancy and potential of united citizens and stakeholders working together to build a brighter future for our city. ArtWorks is a program that exclusively targets teens in Milwaukee and helps them build a genuine work ethic and develop the identified skills necessary to succeed no matter what career they choose to pursue.
“Communities That Care” is a project that celebrates homeowners, renters, business owners, or community organizations that care about the quality and safety of their neighborhoods. ArtWorks is asking for community support and participation in our project. To participate, we are requesting pictures of homes, businesses, and community spaces as a symbol of their promise to support our pledge. Please send photographs as a jpeg to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
