Westown In Bloom
Milwaukee Downtown, BID #21 and the Downtown Placemaking Task Force have commissioned local artist Emma Daisy Gertel for a new Westown gateway mural at the northeast corner of James Lovell Street and Wisconsin Avenue. This high-impact canvas features an urban garden as its subject matter—a metaphor for the resurgence in Westown. Installation began in late-June 2019 following community engagement sessions. The approximate size of the mural is 80-ft. x 50-ft.
