Temporary Mural Project: Colin Matthes, Winter 2011
This past Thursday in the freezing cold we said goodbye to the Kimberly Weiss mural "Build It Up Bay View" said hello to the third installment of the Temporary Mural Project with a new piece featuring Colin Matthes.
The Temporary Mural Project is curated by Faythe Levine & Aaron Polansky, it takes up 8'x 8' on the East side of Sky High (facing Howell Ave). Each mural is created by a Milwaukee based artist who is invited to create an image that promotes community, growth and creativity in our neighborhood. The murals run in three month periods.
About the featured Temporary Mural Artist:
Colin Matthes lives in Milwaukee, WI, and works across a range of media including
drawing, sculpture, installation, public art, and print based projects. In 2010 Matthes
completed the Werkkamp Residency in Antwerp, Belgium and had solo-exhibitions at
Igloo Gallery, Portland, OR and Ripon College, Ripon, WI. Upcoming projects include a
solo-exhibition at Art Space Leguit, Antwerp, Belgium.
