A week’s worth of events celebrating the spirit and culture of Milwaukee’s premiere African American business and entertainment district will culminate tomorrow with the Bronzeville Art Walk, organizer Alderwoman Milele A. Coggs said.

The Art Walk takes place from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. at various locations along Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Dr. between W. North Ave. and W. Garfield Ave. These include Gee’s Clippers at 2215 N. MLK Dr., Art is for Lovers Gallery at 2228 N. MLK Dr., 2241 N. MLK Dr. and 2200 N. MLK Dr.

“The art and culture of the Bronzeville area are some of the richest and most vibrant in the city,” Alderwoman Coggs said. “This year’s Bronzeville Week has been a fantastic success, due to the support and participation of local volunteers and business owners. The Art Walk is a fitting way to wrap up the festivities, and I hope to see many of my neighbors in attendance.”

The self-guided outdoor tour will feature local Milwaukee artists including Christopher McIntyre (CMPerceptions), Evelyn P. Terry, Blanche Brown, Rosemary Ollision, Ammar Nsoroma, Fatima Laster, Della Wells, Gabrielle Tesfaye, Fallicy Belle, Mutope J. Johnson, Turtle Sooup, Bernadine Muhammad, Nigeria, Laci Coppins (Voices of the Community, Visions For Milwaukee), Gabriel Thomas, Aisha Valentin, Kiera K. Carter, Anika M. Kowalik, Nyesha Brown and Kris French.

As with most Bronzeville Week activities, participation is free.
