Wheat-paste Project

 

RedLine Milwaukee has a new 23 foot boxer wheat-paste on the side of the building. The image is part of the Kwasniewski collection from the UWM Library Digital Archives and is part of a series of work from a two-year collaboration between RedLine Milwaukee artists in residence Marc Tasman, Jake Hill and Clayton Haggarty.

The boxer's name is Emil Kayer, and he was a Polish immigrant from the Milwaukee neighborhood of Polonia. (The original image was taken in 1920 by photographer 
Roman Kwasniewski)
