The free digital event, part of the virtual Doors Open, which runs through Oct. 11, will feature five-minute “lightning round” presentations from eight community projects, using multimedia and storytelling to share their backstory.
In the lead up, we are publishing mini-features on the projects. Today, we feature Glorious Malone’s Fine Sausage and the Neighborhood Tiles project in the Clarke Square neighborhood.
Glorious Malone’s Fine Sausage
Behind the walls of a quiet, red brick building on the corner of North Martin Luther King Jr. Drive and West Walnut Street, a family legacy and locally owned food business thrives. Glorious Malone’s Fine Sausage began as a small neighborhood shop in Milwaukee’s Bronzeville and operates today with 10 employees, producing as much as 235,000 pounds of headcheese a year sold throughout the Midwest and beyond.
The presentation for Glorious Malone’s Fine Sausage will be given by Daphne Jones, Glorious Malone’s president and CEO.
Neighborhood Tiles in Clarke Square
The Neighborhood Tiles project has emerged along South 26th Street in the past two years, featuring ceramic mosaic installations created through the collaboration of local artists, families and neighborhood youth. Led by local art studio Tree of Life Earthworks and Clarke Square Neighborhood Initiative, the project features images that embody different facets of the neighborhood’s many cultures.
The Neighborhood Tiles presentation will be given by Patricia Nájera and Lori Gramling.
