BLACK CAT ALLEY
One of the new venues for this Open Door Milwaukee event was Black Cat Alley. This actual alley is located behind the Oriental Theatre on Farwell Avenue and includes a growing collection of public art. There was a nice diversity of styles. Here are some examples.
It appears that new pieces are being added on an ongoing basis, including at the time of my visit.
I thought following mural of a young black man dressed in red standing against a red background worked well.
The mural is quite large, standing perhaps 15 feet high. Here is a closeup of the man's feet.
I especially liked the following, more complex piece.
Anyone finding themselves in the neighborhood of the Oriental Theatre should pay the alley a visit.
