Westown, Creative Alliance Milwaukee and NEWaukee Collaborate on West Wisconsin Avenue

The Westown Association, Creative Alliance Milwaukee and Newaukee are engaging in a programmatic and artistic collaboration to connect the Westown Farmers’ Market and River Rhythms, NEWaukee’s Night Market, and the Creative Alliance Milwaukee’s 4MKE Initiative in the Fourth and Wisconsin surface parking lot. The groups are hoping to expand upon the exciting momentum west of the Milwaukee River that has been fostered by WAM DC, the development corporation formed to help revitalize West Wisconsin Avenue.

The physical proximity of the concurrent programs happening in Zeidler Union Square, Pere Marquette Park and the city-owned lot at 4th Street and Wisconsin Avenue will be highlighted through temporary chalk art displays, musical performances, paper lantern light installations and guided walking tours led by Adam Carr during NEWaukee’s Night Market.

The Night Market takes place June 17, July 22, August 19 and September 16th on Wisconsin Ave between 2nd and 4th streets from 5-10 pm. Creative Alliance will also have a schedule of programming Wednesday in conjunction with the market throughout the summer.
