Neighborhood Bus Tour with Adam Carr
Saturday, August 2nd, 1 p.m. - 4 p.m.
See the city you know anew.
While Milwaukee is often called a “City of Neighborhoods,” learning about neighborhoods outside of your own can be a challenge — but there are surprising and delightful things happening that you may not know about. Join neighborhood enthusiast Adam Carr for a bus tour featuring public artwork facilitated by Artists Working in Education and get a chance to peek inside one of their Truck Studio vans. The 3-hour tour will be a feast of culture/history/minutia/exploration in Washington Park, Silver City, and Clarke Square neighborhoods and the spaces in between.
