Students from Jazale’s Art Studio and Davis Boys & Girls Club, art director Vedale Hill, and friends and family joined artist-in-residence Mikal Floyd-Pruitt on the Beerline Trail Extension for another edition of Splash! during RiverWorks Week.
SPLASH! Riverworks Week Edition
SPLASH! is a trivia-game involving questions about Milwaukee. Contestants co-produce an original artwork using paint-filled water balloons. In addition, there are performances by local artists and interviews with civic leaders. The show is an engrossing experience that produces strong memories and a fresh sense of belonging in the city.
SPLASH! is presented by I AM MILWAUKEE, a lifestyle brand that promotes unity and agency throughout Milwaukee. SPLASH! was initiated in 2014 by director Mikal Floyd-Pruitt, a local artist who was born and raised in the Sherman Park Neighborhood of Milwaukee. The variety show has occurred at the ARTery and Victory Gardens Initiative in Harambee, and at elementary schools in collaboration with the arts education organization Arts@Large.
