They [Arts @ Large] may not know this, but they have been a huge source of moral support that has impacted my life. They’ve given me a lot of positive feedback over the years about my different programs that has helped my confidence in my creativity.

Artist Educator

Schools across the City of Milwaukee benefit from the work of Arts @ Large and the Artist Educators that partner with us.  Short and long-term artist residencies are available for artists seeking to use their artform as a way to engage students in learning across the spectrum of academics, art and music.

Artist-in-Residence

The 2022-23 Artist-in-Residence program, at the Arts @ Large Community Center, features a diverse group of artists selected from among more than 50 applicants by a jury of past artists-in-residence and arts professionals.
