Do It

keep swinging under bridges + making sp/ace in Milwaukee

A local group in Milwaukee called beintween installed swings on September 9th, 2012 in the media garden on the east side of the Marsupial Bridge. This bridge connects several of the surrounding neighborhoods. These swings add purpose to our urban infrastructure and a playful interruption to those passing by. It is our hope that the swing park serves not only as an element of recreation, but as a point of reconsideration for those leftover spaces in our city.

This installation is a part of a common cents collaboration which intends to identify strong hubs within the city and support their existence. The swing park fulfills beintween's social engagement mission to make [art] do [work].
