UWM students to create PARK(ing) Day art in Shorewood

Aug. 9, 2011

PARK(ing) Day, an international public art program, comes to Shorewood on Sept. 16 thanks to a collaboration between the village's Public Arts Committee and students at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee School of Architecture and Urban Planning.

Associate Professor Mo Zell said her students will develop public art displays that will be placed in metered public parking places on Capitol Drive between noon and 6 p.m. Students will analyze the sites and create both a poster showing an analysis of the site and a three dimensional model of the artwork they deem appropriate.

Zell told the Village Board last night that PARK(ing) Day began in 2005 and since then has grown to include 140 cities in 21 countries on six continents.

Dick Eschner of the Public Arts Committee said the event will be a way to make people interested and aware of public art.

Last year Zell's students did a similar project in Milwaukee.
