The non-profit organization Arts@Large provides arts-based programming geared to educators, students and their families, and the broader Milwaukee community. Arts@Large hired TKWA to assist with adaptive re-use of the 1890’s Patrick Cudahy building located at the southern end of historic 5th Street, the Creative Corridor of the Walker’s Point Neighborhood of Milwaukee.

The repurposed three-story building provides a permanent gathering space for artists, teachers, students, and the broader community. The Center will offer arts-based initiatives that give a platform for all ages to tell their stories and share them through visual, literary, performing, and multimedia arts.
