Downtown's Floor-to-Ceiling Mural Experience
“Migration” is a collaboration between artists Cera and Katie Batten, both of whom are 2012 graduates of the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design, located in the Historic Third Ward. Mural images have been sourced from Milwaukee's natural and built environment, featuring Cream City brick, streetscape features, and iconic landmarks such as the Milwaukee Art Museum and the Hoan Bridge. Wisconsin's migratory birds and the flow of water are incorporated, a nod to the local ecology and a metaphor for the migration of workers, residents, and visitors between the central business district and Historic Third Ward neighborhoods.
Support for “Migration” comes from Milwaukee Downtown, BID #21, Johnson Controls, Inc., City of Milwaukee, Buffalo Van Buren Partners, Hawkeye Hotels/JR Hospitality, HKS Holdings, LLC, Hospitality Democracy, and Milwaukee World Festival, Inc.
