Thank you to OnMilwaukee‘s Bobby Tanzilo for breaking the wonderful news that we will be managing the planning, logistics and installation for Wauwatosa’s new mural corridor, sponsored by their Tourism Commission.
Wallpapered City‘s Stacey Williams-Ng, the force of artistic nature that helped make the East Side mural walk an amazing reality, is working with the Wauwatosa Tourism Commission on a series of murals on exterior walls in the East Tosa neighborhood, along West North Avenue near 68th and 69th Streets, near such popular neighborhood businesses as Rocket Baby Bakery, Cranky Al’s, Il Mito and the Rosebud Cinema Drafthouse.
During the course of the year, a number of murals will be painted, within walking distance of one another, according to the City of Wauwatosa web site.
“This will create a new street art destination that will pull people into the community and create even more reasons to visit Tosa,” says Williams-Ng.
“Public art isn’t just about beautification. That’s not it at all. It’s about community cohesion and storytelling. It brings people out onto the street and binds us together.”
