JOY ENGINE: Thinking Outside of the Box
We create inclusive public art experiences that reflect the diversity of Milwaukee and are welcoming, family-friendly, and free for all.
Bringing Public Art to Life in Milwaukee
JOY ENGINE is a nonprofit public art organization curating intentional, immersive art experiences to connect, uplift, and inspire the Milwaukee community. We partner with a diverse group of local and international artists to reimagine urban spaces through wondrous, larger-than-life installations — expanding perceptions of how citizens engage with art and advancing community viability and inclusion through creative expression.
