The Arts @ Large Community


Each year, Arts @ Large provides hundreds of opportunities for artists, across multiple disciplines, to engage with schools and the community.

Schools & Teachers

All artists are educators, all educators are artists. 

Arts @ Large  builds the confidence and competence of educators to use the arts to engage students in dynamic educational activities.


Our commitment to lifelong learning starts with youth. These opportunities bring an awareness to creativity and instill an arts-integrated life.


We are proud to call Walker’s Point our home. Our mission honors the diversity that makes Milwaukee’s artistic community great.

Upcoming Events


May 2024

Jam House

Jam House is back on May 10 from 7-9 PM!

Doors: 6:30pm
Jam: 7pm-9pm

Piano, amp, PA, and drums provided!

Hosted by Jeanne Marie Farinelli and Friends, this Open Jam removes the barrier between stage and audience. Jeanne is an MPS Music teacher at Bayview Montessori and she performs regularly with jazz groups throughout Milwaukee.

Anyone in the crowd can go from an audience member to the featured performer while creating songs on stage that are then recorded and given to them the week after the show.

Come create and collaborate with some of our city’s best musicians and create music on the spot.

Jam House is more than an open mic with a live backing band; it is a vibrant community space where musicians and artists of all skill levels collaborate to create original music together.

All jams are recorded at Arts @ Large and given to everyone that plays!

Thank you to Joy Engine for making this program possible.

Join Jeanne Marie Farinelli and Friends 2/9, 3/8, 4/12, 5/10 and 6/7!

Masterclass: Ceramics for Outdoor Art

Making ceramic art for outdoors. Ceramic art structures have endured the elements for hundreds of years. Along with artists-in-residence, La Familia de Arte, we will explore the wonderful resilient features of fired clay, and how to create art that keeps its beauty in an urban setting, and maintains through Wisconsin winters and summer sunlight. This is a free event.
