A Public Art Initiative
The Hartwork Project – expected to be an annual event – features sculptures by three local artists and asks the community to select its favorites.
The top vote-getters will have their works on display in the park during the summer months, when Hart Park is hopping pretty much every single day, thanks to Tosa Tonight and other events and festivals, a great playground, sports fields, a skate park, splash pad and more.
The public art projects are tourism initiatives funded through hotel/motel tax revenue, not property tax dollars.
How to Vote
We will take online votes through Wednesday, February 20 at 11:59 pm. We also have displays with voting options setup at the Wauwatosa Public Library, City Hall, and the Muellner Building.
Vote for your top two favorite to be displayed at Hart Park from May to October.
A mostly self-taught Wisconsin native, Paul has a passion for using repurposed materials in his work. Paul’s relationship-based sculptures are part of a 6-acre outdoor gallery and are included in prominent public and private collections.
Ben Zoltak lives in Lake Mills, Wisconsin, where he continues his experimental sculpture, paints, as well as writes and sketches proposals. Ben’s art captures highly variable subjects oftentimes playing on animal forms and the human figure, and often showing reverence for nature and many times using repurposed materials.
Craig Gray lives in Key West Florida and has created permanent and temporary art displays in 21 different states. Craig works in steel, stone, and concrete with inspiration from the heart inspired by Americana. His goal is to make art that appeals to most and brings a smile to your face.
