On Friday, May 1st, WPCA was tightly packed. A perfect convergence of a great group of artists (literally and figuratively) and a warm spring weather brought the Milwaukeeans out in force to attend the opening of MARN Mentors exhibition. In fact, we counted a ground breaking attendance of over 300 people.
Thank you all for coming and perhaps you can see yourself somewhere in the background of the photos.
