I’m excited to see this effort be resurrected, especially as we near the opening of Bucyrus Commons.
From the city …
The City of South Milwaukee invites artists to submit for a mural project on the west wall of the South Milwaukee Human Concerns building at 1029 Milwaukee Avenue.
The building is located in the heart of the downtown, adjacent to our successful South Milwaukee Downtown Market, Da Crusher Statue and the new Bucyrus Commons gathering space.
The project’s goal is to bring the community together and attract visitors to the downtown. The design should represent new beginnings for the City of South Milwaukee. Beautification and “surprise and delight” is encouraged.
Applicants may be an individual, artist, or group of artists, submitting a concept by March 13, 2023. Upon selection, an artist will develop a final design and begin work June 2023.

Downtown South Milwaukee is full of walls screaming for a mural. This is a great start — and I hope it’s just a start. Public art like this is an important component of any revitalization effort
