Bringing Joy To Milwaukee One Awe-
Inspiring Art Experience At A Time.

Public Art For All

We invite the Milwaukee community to celebrate all forms of public art — from the ephemeral to enduring, to the quirky and surprising — and delight in the pleasures of artistic imagination.

Joy Engine Events

Our public art exhibits, programming, installations, and other projects are always welcoming, family-friendly, and free for everybody.
