BVNA to take art public

Nov. 30, 2006

The Bay View Neighborhood Association is working on yet another project designed to bring visitors to "downtown" Bay View and enhance the local landscape.

Stephanie Harling, president of the BVNA, said the group is working on a public art installation with a target date of late April or early May to unveil the pieces.

Harling said three of four potential sites along South Kinnickinnic Avenue have been identified to act as hosts for the temporary public art exhibit - Wild Flour Bakery building near South Kinnickinnic and East Lincoln avenues, an empty storefront on South Kinnickinnic Avenue and the Avalon Theater.

"We're still working on the fourth location," she said.

The art may be displayed on the interior of some locations and outside other spots, Harling said.

She said the association has not yet issued a call for proposals, but said she hopes the art might include large murals, silhouette art, sculpture or any type of art that might attract interest and add to the aesthetics of the area.

The neighborhood association is working in partnership with Insite Milwaukee for the spring installation and Harling said the groups are considering producing "cycles of art" in Bay View, perhaps with another exhibit in another part of the community at a later date.

Harling said the BVNA is funding the project.
