Common Thread Sculpture

A sculptural piece installed in the Milwaukee Public Library, Mitchell Street Branch that was created as part of Ledesma’s Artists-in-Residence program through a collaboration between Artists Working in Education, Listening to Mitchell, and the National Endowment of the Arts. Community members, who breathed life into the library, drew their own portraits in the blind contour style and were then created into a sculpture made in iron and plexiglass.
