dsc0801-version-2In the spirit of community and creativity, this family-friendly block party puts ART at its center.

Siona Benjamin’s Beyond Borders exhibit at the Jewish Museum Milwaukee is a cross-cultural masterwork. During Chalk the Block, participants young and old will be provided with simple drawings steeped in Indian imagery to use as templates for their creativity. Trained artists, including Siona herself, will add inspiration and direction as needed.

Come for a short while or stay to watch your community transform a public space into a work of art.

Celebrate the day with your neighbors in one of four locations:

– Jewish Museum Milwaukee (1360 N. Prospect Ave.)
– Mitchell Street Branch of Milwaukee Public Library (906 W. Mitchell St.)
– Black Cat Alley – in partnership with East Branch Library (E. Ivanhoe Pl.)
– Marcus Performing Arts Center (929 N. Water St.)

FREE and open to the public. For more info call (414) 390-5730 or visit
