Art Intersection MKE is a sculpture and mural garden that was created for public benefit– and we believe that art combined with meaningful human connection is the Art of Living Well.


Our greenspace is a place where people can come together to develop and experience meaningful connections through art and community.

We feature public art designed and produced by regional artists, to be shared and celebrated with the neighborhood community.    


Art Intersection MKE provides community arts and entertainment programming and we're able to accommodate private events.


We aspire and strive to be an inclusive space where representation matters. 


Art Intersection MKE is owned and maintained by Derrick Cainion.
