Brief Description

As part of a series of new projects aimed at enhancing downtown’s ‘third spaces,’ Milwaukee Downtown, Business Improvement District (BID) #21, in partnership with the Downtown Placemaking Task Force and Westown Association, issue a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for “The Gateway Mural Project,” located on the west-facing facade of 622 W. Wisconsin Avenue. The Gateway Mural Project is a district-defining art installation and part of the Westown renaissance. The approximate dimensions of the mural are 50 ft. (height) x 80 ft. (length). To amplify the West Wisconsin Avenue renaissance, the Gateway Mural Project seeks to enhance a highly-visible surface at the intersection of West Wisconsin Avenue and James Lovell Street. The mural is part of a larger series of recent projects administered by the Downtown Placemaking Task Force, including Wisconsin Avenue utility box murals in 2017, and “Migration,” a mural in the Jefferson Street pedestrian tunnel in 2018.
