Each year, our arts educators lead students in creating an ofrenda to honor someone who has had an impact in the arts and art education. This year, Arts Education Coordinator MaiKue Vang and the students are honoring Milwaukee artist and philanthropist Mary Nohl.
WPCA’s arts education programming directly benefits from Mary’s legacy and would not exist without the funding from Greater Milwaukee Foundation Mary L. Nohl Fund. The funding helps us provide after school art classes
