    SILVER CITY NEIGHBORHOOD

    A.I.R.

    A.I.R. Stands for Artist In Residence. Starting in the spring of 2020 Artists Working in Education (AWE) are launching a new Silver City branch of their artist in residence programs. Modeled after the successful Mitchell St. Library A.I.R. program, their goal is to give community members ways to creatively engage with their neighborhoods, neighbors, and share culture.

     

    Sarah Gail Luther - the Artist In Residence in the Silver City, Burnham Park, and Layton Park neighborhood in 2020 - works in Milwaukee as a public artist. Her materials and mediums are always changing, but her art always has the aim to create opportunities to experience something new or see something with fresh eyes.

     

    Sarah hopes the Silver City Neighborhood A.I.R. is an instigator for people in the neighborhood to congregate, share skills, and explore their neighborhood in new ways.
