Villard Square Library Install in Milwaukee

October 18, 2011


Paul Kjelland and I finished the public art install at the Villard Square Library in North Milwaukee this past Saturday at 4:30am – 5 hours before the grand opening! The project was a very rewarding experience from start to finish. I have never, ever experienced an opening quite like this one. The focus was on the neighborhood – a major community celebration and a testament to how essential the public library is to the community and the greater public sphere. In a time when all things public have been getting hammered, this victory stands as a tremendous victory. Proof positive that the greatest assets of a community is found in its public sphere.

Here are some photos of the public art that Paul and I integrated throughout the interior space and some links to recent press.
