Milwaukee Public Schools
MPS is honored to display student artwork along the Lincoln Memorial Drive fence. Students have created vibrant fruits and vegetables from plywood using a variety of artistic media. In addition to healthy produce, some student artwork expands aspects of the current Milwaukee Art Museum exhibit featuring the Russian artist Kandinsky. Art has been a critical piece of MPS’ efforts to restore art, music and physical education teachers to district schools over the last two years; more than 90 specialist positions have been added. Lakefront Festival of Art is a great opportunity to showcase the expanded MPS arts curriculum and the talents of our young people.
