work of local artists . Volunteer curators are instrumental in the success of the Milwaukee

Avenue Arts Festival and other exhibition as well as local pop up ,window galleries and

coffee houses. Most of the curators are artists themselves and have given unselfishly of their

time and creative energy. The grass roots nature of these artists' involvement is one of the key

factors in the growing excitement around the visual arts in this neighborhood.  Artists have

come together to plan events, creating new networks and working collaboratively to produce

them. The Curator's Showcase is a way to celebrate their accomplishments.

Scheidt  with audio collaborator, Wes Immel.
