Dear Milwaukee Arts Supporter,
Community support for the Center Street Artists Relief Efforts has been
inspiring so far. We ask for your financial donation now to reach our goal.
*We have raised $10,000 of our $25,000 minimum goal for the Center Street
Artists Relief Fund. We intend to release the first wave of this funding
directly to the affected artists by Friday, August 24, 2012, and encourage
your contribution by that date.*
The Center Street Artist Relief Fund is being distributed as direct
financial support for immediate relief to the artists who were affected by
the fire and who sustained space in the building. A council including Sara
Daleiden, Mark Lawson, Polly Morris, and John Riepenhoff is overseeing the
distribution in collaboration with MARN.
On July 17, 2012, a tragic five-alarm fire quickly spread throughout the
631 E. Center Street building in Riverwest. The Center Street building was
a progressive hive of artists live-work studios, galleries and project
spaces which existed symbiotically with Joe’s East Coast Auto Shop and
other small businesses.
The Milwaukee Artist Resource Network (MARN) initiated the Center Street
Artist Relief Fund
emergency support to these artists displaced by the fire.
Over twenty artists had professional artist studios within the building.
Eight of these artists lost their homes. Seven of these spaces regularly
hosted exhibitions, performances and other projects.
“The material loss resulting from this tragedy is still being tallied, but
the cultural loss is cataclysmic and its impact is more difficult to define
for the city, the neighborhood, and the community of artists who inhabited
this hub of creative practice.”
— John Riepenhoff, artist
and owner, The Green Gallery
The Green Gallery had its storage space for artists with national and
international reputations including Peter Barrickman, Santiago Cucullu,
Nicholas Frank, Michelle Grabner, Scott Reeder, Tyson Reeder and David
Robbins. The Green Gallery West, an experimental branch of the gallery, as
well as gallery owner John Riepenhoff’s studio, were the backbone of the
art center. More testimonials from local and international supporters can
be found at The Green Gallery
While the loss is still being assessed, the value of artwork and artist’s
property in the building is estimated at a minimum of $500,000. Most of
these artists had the majority of their artwork housed in the building, as
well as art equipment and supplies. Several of these artists had
significant investment in build-out of their studios.
Affected artists include Peter Barrickman; Katie Belongia; Sara Caron of
Small Spaces; Pegi Christiansen, IN:SITE; Sara Daleiden, MKE<->LAX; Brittany
Ellenz, Liza Pflughoft, Alec Regan and Oliver Sweet, American Fantasy
Classics; Brad Fiore, James Pederson and Jessi Schleis, Nomadic Art
Gallery; Cody Frei, Tyler Roberts and Michael Sinise, CENTER; Allison
Heape; Ashley Janke, nAbr gallery; Sarah Luther; Ben Miller, Plum House; Joe
Riepenhoff, Good Day Sir Studios; and John Riepenhoff and Jake Palmert, The
In the weeks to follow, fundraising events are being organized by leading
arts organizations and the local community to further support these funds.
While MARN is focusing the emergency fund on affected artists who do not
readily have access to insurance and other financial support, we recognize
the deep loss suffered by the building owners, the auto garage workers,
other residents and workers, and their families. We are grateful to the
building owners for the thoughtful consideration extended to the artists.
The Riverwest Neighborhood Association
a fund to support all the residents and workers in the building, including
those associated to the auto garage.
“A thing thrives when it is thriving, and is gone when it is gone. The loss
of 631 E. Center St. is not only of homes and studios for artists, and of
venues for their work, but of a flourishing subculture, rare for any city.
What doesn’t have to be lost is the potential of the place. It’s important
to recognize that a new generation of young Milwaukee artists had decided
to invest their considerable energies, ambitions and hopes *here*, rather
than *elsewhere*, which is a significant development unto itself. My hope
is that the loss of momentum is not permanent, that these folks don’t end
up having to scatter to the four winds, that these venues will find new
homes in proximity to each other and continue their programming, and that
this significant investment in our local culture can be rewarded with
– Nicholas Frank, Milwaukee-based artist and writer
