After several years of limited arts programming due to budgetary constraints, the YMCA of Metropolitan Milwaukee will reintroduce regular visual arts programming, thanks to a $10,000 grant from the Greater Milwaukee Foundation’s Mary L. Nohl Fund.
The YMCA will partner with the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s Peck School of the Arts, Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design and Milwaukee Area Teachers of Art community program on the programming, which will engage teaching artists to offer two six-week visual art sessions at John C. Cudahy, Rite-Hite, South Shore, Feith and Tri-County branches.
The Foundation awarded a total of $260,000 to 23 visual arts programs during the third quarter from the Nohl Fund with co-investment from other Greater Milwaukee Foundation funds.
