Westown In Bloom
A New Gateway to Westown
Milwaukee Downtown, BID #21 and the Downtown Placemaking Task Force commissioned local artist Emma Daisy Gertel for a new Westown gateway mural at the northeast corner of James Lovell Street and Wisconsin Avenue. This highly visible 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 at the Westown Farmers' Market and World Refugee Day. The approximate size of the mural is 80-ft. x 50-ft.
