A three-story, 128-year-old building at the southeast corner of Washington and Fifth streets in Milwaukee’s Walker’s Point neighborhood is being transformed into the new home for Arts @ Large.
Arts @ Large, the nonprofit organization that provides arts education for Milwaukee Public School students, purchased the historic building in 2017 to expand. It is currently leasing 3,000 square feet two blocks north, at 908 S. Fifth St.
The $6.2 million renovation project will include a gallery to showcase student art, an art-making center, public event space, a culinary arts training center, nonprofit incubator studios and public event space. The new space is expected to open in the fall.
Address: 1100 S. Fifth St.
