MILWAUKEE — Sculpture Milwaukee announced Tuesday that they will be expanding their outdoor exhibit into the Historic Third Ward.

In previous years, the outdoor exhibit was exclusive to Wisconsin Avenue, but due to a partnership with the Black Fox Fund, this year's exhibit will be quite a bit larger.

According to a press release, this partnership will create connectivity and enhance visibility and vibrancy for the neighborhoods.

“Sculpture Milwaukee is about utilizing public art as a catalyst for energizing Wisconsin Avenue’s downtown corridor, contributing to its reemergence as a community and economic hub,” said Executive Director Brian Schupper. “Extending to the Historic Third Ward, an adjacent neighborhood that has an overlapping commitment to a creative engagement of our community, is a natural next step in our growth.”

This year's exhibit is looking like it will be the largest and most ambitious to date. New sculptures will be installed in late May and early June, with the exhibit running through mid-October.
