In the spring of 2008, the Riverwest Artists Association purchased the historic Jazz Gallery building to create a community art center for the Riverwest neighborhood. The building had been poorly maintained for many years and is requiring considerable renovation and repair. Much progress has been made over the last two years (we have new furnaces/air!) but there is still more work to be done. We need your help to finish this monumental task. Please consider supporting this project by donating a piece of your artwork.

RAA is an all-volunteer, non-profit, art organization aimed to further stimulate you, and our outstanding Milwaukee community.

"in the heart of Riverwest"

The show is a celebration of the students and art instructor at Franklin Pierce elementary school in Riverwest. On display will be a wide variety of student works including a site specific mural.

hearts and vivid imaginations.
