I promised you an unveiling of the bus mural created entirely by City of Milwaukee teens. Here it is!
Fourteen of the city’s young artists came together for three weeks over the summer to create a mural that used the themes and symbols from the Museum’s Summer of CHINA exhibitions to inspire a bus mural positively addressing an issue in the Milwaukee community.
Below, find lots of images of the teens, their families, teachers, and friends celebrating their hard work at the reception in early October. For more information about the program and the work behind the mural, check out this blog post from last month. And if you really want to get involved with teen programs, “like” the Teens at Milwaukee Art Museum page on Facebook.
The Milwaukee Art Museum High School Internships are held in partnership with RedLine Milwaukee and are supported by the Milwaukee Public Schools Partnership for the Arts, The Freeman Foundation, Mary L. Nohl Fund of the Greater Milwaukee Foundation, and the Wisconsin Arts Board.
Chelsea Emelie Kelly was the Museum’s Manager of Digital Learning. In addition to working on educational technology initiatives like the Kohl’s Art Generation Lab and this blog, she oversaw and taught teen programs.
