Mauricio Ramirez is a prolific muralist with large scale works throughout the United States, including some of Milwaukee's most iconic public art works. Latino Arts is proud to present Poly-wave: Seeds of Color and Shape, a solo exhibition featuring new works by Mauricio Ramirez.

In this exhibit he continues to evolve his colorful and geometry based style while he explores his Mexican American cultural roots and other influences within his creative process.

This is an exhibit not to be missed as Ramirez brings his work indoors on a smaller scale but carries a monumental presence through color and shape.

Latino Arts, Inc. is excited to announce that Mauricio Ramirez will be the featured artist for the annual Noche de Gala fundraiser event on Saturday, Sept. 25, 2021!

July is #WorldWatercolorMonth. We commemorate it by showing off a Wisconsin watercolor by folk artist Paul Seifert, who painted Driftless Area farmscapes like this one (the Sprecher Farm) during the late 1800s. His life and work is showcased in the Society Press book, "Wisconsin in Watercolor" by Joe Kapler." The book is available at your favorite book retailer or in our online store, https://shop.wisconsinhistory.org/wisconsin-in-watercolor-the-life-and-legend-of-folk-artist-paul-seifert

Need ASAP: Two families to host students from Spain. The Spanish scholarship students are some of the nicest kids you'll ever meet! This scholarship is so competitive, it's actually harder to win one than to get into Yale or Harvard. The students have great personalities, excellent grades, very good English speaking skills and they're still waiting to hear that a lovely American family will take them in as one of their own for the upcoming school year. It's a great way for your family to learn more about Spain too! PM me for more details or take a look at these great students at:

What is seriously you problem??? Another new flag search? Really? One that has been embraced throughout your city. One that is genius in design. Nope. Let's do it again. This board should be disbanded and disappear for this ONE idiotic ridiculous decision. I guess I didn't know the the sunrise what race specific.
ZIP MKE invites you to a unique silent art auction (with raffle bundles, too!). We have selected some of the most evocative photos from its collection of 2,000 photographs, then asked dozens of local artists to interpret those images in the medium, style, and size of their choice. Just as each photo serves to represent a particular ZIP Code of the city--and sometimes re-present a face, a place, or an experience in a positive light--the artists will be re-presenting the images one more time. Artwork will be auctioned at our October 19th fundraiser. 30% of the sale of each artwork will go to the artist and the photographer of the inspiration photo will receive 10%. The remaining 60% will benefit ZIP MKE's mission and vision as we enter our third year of serving the community through re-imaging, one ZIP Code, one neighborhood, one photograph at a time. We know that your gallery, too, may be open for Gallery Night, but we hope you will consider sending a representative or curator to our auction. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. Thank you, Dominic Inouye | Director, ZIP MKE [email protected] 414-339-9489 ​ https://www.facebook.com/events/2162335123790112/ _______________________ Dominic Inouye 414-339-9489 Director, ZIP MKE City Organizer, Jane's Walk MKE Freelance writer, Milwaukee Independent
