Stitching the Community Together
"Home to the Mural in the Sky"
Planning began in 2019 for a new mural spanning across the 2nd Street skywalk as part of the redevelopment at The Avenue and 3rd Street Market Hall. Working with Milwaukee Downtown, BID #21, and the Downtown Placemaking Task Force, a public call for artists was launched in early 2020. After reviewing 60+ submissions, project leaders and community members selected Wisconsin artist Jaime Brown, and collaborator Karim Jabbari to bring this unique mural to life. Work on the mural was completed in August, transforming this once overlooked block in downtown Milwaukee into a must-see destination, bringing smiles to countless residents, employees, and art aficionados alike.
The mural encompasses the south-facade, under panels, columns, and parts of the north-facade.
