Temporary public art grounded in neighborhoods is thriving in Milwaukee. Originally part of In-Site’s 2011 “Century City Project,” Faith Purvey’s dynamic installation, “Refoundation,” has stood the test of time. The project is an outdoor studio space located in a field on 29th and Melvina where Purvey works out of a trailer and storage pod to offer building, photography, painting, play and conversation opportunities to neighborhood residents. With sponsorship from the Neighborhood Improvement Development Corporation (NIDC), Milwaukee Public Theatre, Century City Tri-Angle Neighborhood Association and the Riverwest Artists Association, “Refoundation” now celebrates its third summer of programming.

Join Century City community members on Friday, July 19, from 3-6 p.m. (29th and Melvina) for a celebration of this year’s projects. Offerings include information on “Refoundation,” art and photography displays, dancing, gospel singing and barbeque.

Would white supremacists, neo-Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan pose the same threat they do now if a mainstream Republican were president instead of Donald Trump?
