As far as other highlights--the galleries lining Milwaukee were packed with a huge variety of art, from installations for Satellite to the stellar Polish artist exhibit, Unzipped II, there was something for everyone. A special thanks to our art committee headed by Anysquared projects for the vast amount of pop-up galleries and exhibitions throughout the festival! Did you get a chance to see each gallery?? If not, don't fret because our incredible team of photography volunteers photographed each and every exhibit, band and performance! And the performances were spectacular--many of which were held at the newly opened Logan Square Arts Center.
So overall, we are very pleased and overwhelmed with the support and success of the 2011 Milwaukee Avenue Arts Festival. The talent in this city and neighborhood impresses us more each day and without the support of you, the fest wouldn't be possible! And remember to keep up to date with the arts in Logan Square by checking out our website's event calendar.
