Joe Brusky of MTEA and the Overpass Light Brigade made a time lapse video of the recent Voces de la Frontera Community Art Build that was held in Milwaukee from January 17-28. The art build produced for Voces and the immigrant rights movement in Wisconsin over 450 screenprinted pickets signs, close to 20 banners, 400-plus butterfly cut outs, nearly 100 t-shirts, 200 plus silkscreen pennants, 1000 screenprinted posters, and a 100 yard banner that is 10′ wide. It was a beautiful group effort by 300-plus people working in collaboration with a movement. Joe Brusky’s photos and his video captures the spirit of the movement, the art build, and the activist-art infrastructure that is becoming so pronounced in Milwaukee and beyond.
