Project Description

A temporary public art installation made from conversations with residents in selected Milwaukee neighborhoods.

The objective of TypeFace is to provoke a broader understanding of Milwaukee’s diverse urban neighborhoods, both internally and externally, through the creation of bold and striking visuals based on community-generated narratives. This project is not about distributing new seeds in a community or rising from the ashes — it’s about self-actualization and harnessing the rich imagination of residents engaged and invested in some of Milwaukee’s oldest, most distinct and most culturally rich neighborhoods.
