We piloted the "ArtWorks for You" arts entrepreneurship internship in summer 2015 and based on its success, have continued to offer it as a paid Tier 3 opportunity for alumni. This new effort engages interns in selling the artwork that they create. In 2016, we are engaging these interns for the whole year in an ongoing internship to give them a chance to build this business through an online store, an online marketing strategy, a physical store in our studio, and selling their artwork face-to-face at community events with lead artist John Kowalczyk.
Interns will research histories of Wisconsin’s Latino immigrant workers and the 50-year history of UMOS (United Migrant Opportunity Services) through individual interviews and an oral history project. The depiction of these histories will culminate in a large-scale mural on 1st and Mitchell on side of the Butters-Fetting Building. Interns will conduct oral history interviews, learn about translating words into images, brainstorm design ideas, and paint the mural’s final design. Interns will work with students and faculty from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and the Milwaukee School of Engineering as well as an advisory board of community leaders, engaging in the history of UMOS and “culture work”—people who are making careers in art, media, history, and other cultural fields.

In this partnership program interns will be hired through ArtWorks to create a youth leadership team at the host site, Express Yourself Milwaukee. The theme of the 2015-16 EXYOMKE program is ILLUMINATE. The ArtWORKS/EXYOMKE Internship will be illuminating attributes and qualities of being a leader, leaders in our community and images that express and share our leadership in the world. Interns will also learn to be facilitators, role models and mentors to youth in other Express Yourself Milwaukee studio programming and in monthly Good EATS events at Express Yourself Milwaukee. Interns will be part of an artistic cohort of high school aged youth where they will research, engage and create individual and group artistic expressions of their learning, practice and understanding of responsive leadership. Exhibition of art created in the internship will take place at the December Good EATS, ArtWorks Annual Meeting, and in the EXYOMKE May 2016 annual performance.
Under the direction of artist and entrepreneur, Christopher McIntyre Perceptions, the program “ArtWorks For You” will challenge interns on how to create capital from creative concepts made into tangible products through the process of relief prints. Interns will learn the business side of the art market and develop skills such as marketing, branding, merchandising, customer service, sales, finance and more. Interns will also get an opportunity to sell their art to buyers at summer markets like Bronzeville and Brady Street Days.

Interns who live in or are connected to the Layton Boulevard West Neighborhood will be hired as a team to collaborate in the design and painting of a large 2D wall-sized outdoor mural and sculpture garden that will be installed in Burnham Park. Interns will learn community-building through several structured public workshops for neighborhood residents to participate in the development of the mural's content. The public workshops will involve games that use movement and story-sharing for everyone to share about their lives and connections to their park.
Afterwards, the team will create a design capturing the essence of the stories shared and honoring the vibrant lives in the area, and then paint the mural and sculptures. A portion of the painting process will be open to community residents.
During the design process there will be an opportunity, not a requirement, to learn some Adobe Photoshop for interns who are interested. This program builds cooperation skills, good listening skills and a willingness to stretch beyond one's comfort zone. Public workshops and design sessions are conducted under the guidance of lead artist Tia Richardson.
Special thanks to all the supporters of this program. This program is supported in part by a grant from the Milwaukee Arts Board and the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin.
Five intern alumni who live or attend school in the 53206 zip code will work in collaboration with Community Hands Block Watch, Groundwork Milwaukee, and Redemption Fellowship Church in the Franklin Heights neighborhood. Interns will create a mural installation in the community garden on 26th Street and Keefe Ave. This program is the first time that we are hiring a cohort of intern alumni for further art and career development opportunities. All of the interns in this program have already completed an ArtWorks program.
Interns will continue strengthening the 21st Century Skills they learned in their first ArtWorks internship and build leadership skills by working as community builders to guide the community input process towards a public art installation under the direction of lead artist Kim Loper. The interns will learn about the community process by conducting public town hall meetings in the neighborhood as a way to generate resident input into the development of the mural's content. Through structured processes, the team will create a design that represents neighborhood stories and will present ideas to a Franklin Heights community arts council for approval, opening the painting process up to neighborhood residents. Additionally, interns will turn the final image of the mural into salable merchandise and work throughout the early summer selling items at the Fondy Farmer’s Market.
This program is possible thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor and a City of Milwaukee Community Improvement Project grant.
