Black Cat Alley is Milwaukee’s first open-air gallery and muraled alley, so in celebration of Doors Open weekend, Black Cat Alley is opening up its sidewalks to the next generation of young artists. Children of any age are invited to create their own works of art in the alley. Sprecher root beer and Scratch ice cream will be on hand for separate purchase, or as root beer floats.
