Comments Off on Milwaukee youth revamp “Drift” bench with a vibrant paint job

Artists Working in Education (A.W.E.) organized a youth art project to revamp Milwaukee’s “Drift” bench with a new vibrant paint job. Inspired by the Midwest’s rolling topography, the curvaceous bench was created in 2011 in a KI Collaborative Architecture Studio at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM) . Years of use, however, had worn out the bench. A.W.E. artists teamed up with students from the nearby Carmen High School to create a new warm color scheme and concept for the bench that featured white abstracted body forms running throughout. In addition to beautifying the landscape and the bench’s new home in Mitchell Park, the project helped participating students gain confidence through art.
