Art Soars To New Heights
From an Overlooked Tunnel to Must-See Photo-Op
Commissioned by the Downtown Placemaking Task Force in 2018, "Migration," spans the 50-ft. length of the Jefferson Street pedestrian tunnel. The public artwork is a collaboration between muralists Janson Rapisarda (CERA Street Art) and Katie Batten, both 2012 graduates of Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design. Greeting nearly 1,000 pedestrians to the central business district and Historic Third Ward neighborhoods each day, "Migration" provides a new sense of arrival in the once overlooked and dark pedestrian tunnel.
