Madison High School CLC unveils student beautification artwork

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- Madison High School Community Learning Center (CLC) will unveil artwork its students created for a neighborhood beautification project this Monday, June 11th. The school collaborated with Alderman Joe Davis Sr. and the Milwaukee Department of Public Works to paint "positive, eco-friendly murals" and display them on city garbage containers around the school.

The project was a required component of the Lions Quest Program, an education initiative  implemented at several Milwaukee schools earlier this year.

The artwork will be displayed for the first time at a news conference this Monday, June 11th at 11:30 a.m. in the school's community learning center. Among those in attendance include Alderman Davis, Department of Public Works Commissioner Ghassan Korban and other individuals who helped facilitate the project.

“The murals I’ve seen on the containers are creative and amazing, and they serve as a visual reminder of how important it is to keep the campus and the neighborhood clean for everyone,” Davis said.

Madison High Schools is located at 8135 W. Florist Ave.
