Radio Milwaukee is joining many of Milwaukee’s finest art and cultural institutions for the the launch of “The Milwaukee Project” on Google Arts & Culture. And especially exciting for the city — Milwaukee is only the second U.S. city to contribute to the global platform.
The Milwaukee Project
After a successful launch of Kansas City: Smoke Rings and the Finer Things, Google Arts & Culture is celebrating Milwaukee, America’s Brew City. Sixteen Milwaukee partners have come together to celebrate Milwaukee’s cultural DNA through stories exploring street art, food favorites, local artists, regional history, performing arts and more. Together, these cultural institutions — 14 of which are new on GA&C — paint a picture of a thriving and creative city.
