Map: Installations of Art along Milwaukee’s Main Street

Sculpture Milwaukee, a one-of-a-kind urban art experience in downtown Milwaukee, has begun to alter Wisconsin Avenue’s landscape with a new creative project.

Brought to life by the vision of Steve Marcus, when the installation is complete it will feature 22 sculptures by renowned artists from around the world, including three from Milwaukee. Each piece has been engineered for its location by the City of Milwaukee and Terra Engineering & Construction.

This map details the art, specifications, and locations of the work along Wisconsin Avenue. Sculpture Milwaukee will be on view June 1 through October 22.
