    Internationally recognized artist Mary Miss is working with SARUP's Urban Design Community Redevelopment studio this semester.

    Mary combines art + architecture with an emphasis on sustainable infrastructure.  Her past work includes a temporary memorial at Ground Zero, 1,000 Steps on Broadway, Water Wall at Olympic Park in Beijing, and the original design for the river walk in the Third Ward.  Her current City as Living Lab (CaLL) initiative includes projects in Long Island City and Indianapolis.

    Taught by Carolyn Esswein and Jim Piwoni, the first project in the studio is focusing on redeveloping the 5th and 6th Street Corridors in Walker’s Point, in Milwaukee.  Mary walked the site with students and challenged them to notice the interesting details of water meters attached to buildings, light poles as opportunities for art, and to investigate how building facades can create opportunities for engaging pedestrians.  Mary presented her lecture, ‘City as Living Laboratory’ to students and staff, and discussed the studio site analysis observations with students.
