Milwaukee Arts Board Opens Public Art Conservation Fund’s New Cycle
The Milwaukee Arts Board has launched its new cycle of funding for the conservation of public art in the City of Milwaukee. The goal is to preserve the city’s cultural and civic heritage embodied in its public art. The fund supports the conservation of works that are historically, culturally and aesthetically important to the city.
In 2021, the Public Art Conservation applications will be considered on a rolling basis as long as funds remain.
The most recent conservation awards went to Lake Park Friends toward the restoration of the General Erastus B. Wolcott Statute in Lake Park and to Milwaukee Downtown toward the cleaning of the Letter Carriers Monument at Cathedral Square.
To alert the Public Art Subcommittee to a piece of public art that requires conservation or to ask questions about the Public Art Conservation Fund application or the process, contact the arts board at firstname.lastname@example.org. A comprehensive list of public art in the City of Milwaukee can be found on Wikipedia.
