MILWAUKEE — Sculpture Milwaukee will be installing an eight-foot-tall sculpture on Wisconsin Ave. Monday afternoon.

The piece, a giant blob monster, is one of 19 coming to Milwaukee as a part of Sculpture Milwaukee's annual exhibit.

The remaining sculptures cover over a mile of Wisconsin Ave. and the Third Ward. The outdoor experience provides ample space for social distancing and is free to the public.

The experience is the perfect excuse to get outdoors with your family and check out some art.

“Art helps us navigate the changing world around us; COVID-19 and the Black Lives Matter movement have transformed our daily lives; public art offers new perspectives, diverse points of view, and opportunities to experience our city in new ways," said Sculpture Milwaukee Board Chair Wayne Morgan. "Sculpture Milwaukee is a thought-provoking, family-friendly cultural destination that is free for all to enjoy."
