The Inspired Art project takes poems written by America SCORES Milwaukee youth and asks local and regional artists to create one of a kind pieces inspired by their words. Each piece of original artwork is photographed and compiled into a graphic collection of SCORES art and imagery with selected pieces brought to auction in a gallery-night themed cocktail event. Inspired Art truly brings the words of SCORES youth to life.
Artists of all types including painters, graphic and fashion designers, sculptors, jewelry makers, architects, etc.
Artists will work on their pieces starting in April through October.
The Inspired Art event will be held Friday, October 24th.
