A sculpture comprised of two colorful hearts inset with mosaics of cultural and religious symbols was officially unveiled at 5919 W. Roosevelt Drive (at Burleigh and 60th St.). The sculpture evolved from residents’ statements and represents “the different kinds of people working together for the betterment of our community,” according to one statement. More than 10 organizations collaborated with sculptor Marina Lee and mosaic artist Ann Wydeven to produce the sculpture titled “Compassion.”
The project was supported by the Greater Milwaukee Foundation’s Mary L. Nohl Fund, and the City of Milwaukee Neighborhood Improvement Development Corporation.
