About Arts At Large Inc.
Arts @ Large activates Milwaukee’s education communities to build environments that support arts-rich, life-long learning. Since our founding in 2001, A@L programs are designed to build school environments that use the arts as an active tool to engage students in experiential learning. We are committed to providing equal access for all students in an education that includes the arts - this is evident in our commitment to expanding our service to more MPS schools each year. With the renovation of our historic building in Walker's Point, we will be implementing programming geared to families and community. Thus, we have expanded our mission to "life-long learning". Including parents and caregivers, as well as our aging community in active, arts-based initiatives give a platform for all ages to tell their stories and share them through visual, literary, performing and multimedia arts. Our mission furthers honoring the diversity that makes Milwaukee so great. We anticipate the new Arts @ Large Community Center will serve 10,000 visitors within its first year of operation.
