Six artists have been chosen to paint murals for a new corridor of public art clustered around the East Tosa area near North Avenue and 68th and 69th streets, according to a posting on the city’s website.
The grouping of walls will be within walking distance of each other, so visitors can explore the city, discover nearby businesses and pose with the murals. The city hired Stacey Williams-Ng of Wallpapered City as an administrator to find artists for the project.
Williams-Ng said the objectives were to curate a collection of works that would enhance the community of Wauwatosa, and to be a strong enough installation to become a viable tourism attraction.
