"Art Lot: Picnic Table"
Milwaukee, WI

In the Summer of 2020, the East Side Business Improvement District (BID) found new ways to add extended seating for restaurant patrons looking to dine outside when a favorite restaurant might be at capacity, and for those looking for a quiet respite in a neighborhood with limited public space. The BID commissioned local artists to paint picnic tables that were placed in the parking lot at 1915 E North Ave., which acted as extended outdoor seating for visitors, residents, and people looking for a good place to eat their carryout.
