Hidden in Plain Sight: Public Art on & off Wickenden
HOURS Sun, May 6th; 3pm-4:00pm
MEETING POINT South Main & Wickenden streets
ENDING POINT Same as Meeting Point
This walk will feature the murals and odd art installations on & around Wickenden Street in Fox Point. We will be stopping at each piece to respond to it via writing and conversation, and will even get a little into the weeds about what exactly public art is.
