A few weeks back one of Milwaukee's most vibrant artist buildings in the Riverwest neighborhood was destroyed by fire. Thankfully no one was seriously injured but upwards of twenty artists and residents lost everything to smoke and water damage. Also destroyed were two alternative gallery spaces and a car repair shop.
The Milwaukee community has gone into high gear to help raise funds for the artists, residents, and workers of the building. Please consider donating to the paypal fund or sending art to an upcoming auction taking place at Sweet Water Organics, 2151 S. Robinson Ave. on Aug. 4, from 6 to 11 p.m. The event will benefit the artists and others affected by the fire. Details after the break.
Art for the auction needs to arrive by Saturday, August 4th and can be dropped off or mailed to:
