Arts and Rivers Contest
Milwaukee Riverkeeper is proud to announce its 2016 Arts and Rivers Contest. To celebrate our rivers, we are seeking visual works that convey the beauty and importance of our waterways in an artistically meaningful way. Content of the work must connect in some way to the Kinnickinnic, Menomonee, and/or Milwaukee rivers. We encourage both amateur and professional artists to submit works of any visual medium: photography, painting, mixed medium, etc. The contest is funded by the late Shirley Holzer-Jeffrey, a long-time Milwaukee Riverkeeper board member and accomplished photographer.
