Black Cat Alley was, until September 2016, just a non-descript and rather dark alley on Milwaukee’s north side.
I probably would have been scared to traverse that alley, until it was transformed into a gallery of murals by 15 Milwaukee street artists! On a recent visit to Milwaukee, Dale and I visited Black Cat Alley, a one-block space starting at Kenilworth St. and ending at Ivanhoe, between Farwell and Prospect Avenues, to see this transformation from “a dark and quiet space” into a “beautiful, cultural destination for the public.”
I found information about Black Cat Alley from this web site before we went to Milwaukee. I would love to visit again in the summertime, and see the other street art scattered throughout the city. It has definitely undergone tremendous transformation since my seven years’ residence there in the 1980s!
