About each mural location:
Paying homage to harmonious Mother Nature, local artist Christina Persika imagines a lively piece dancing with terrazzo-like patterns, color-blocking, and butterflies.
Persika’s abstract work is a nod to legendary painter Vincent Van Gogh. Admiring this magnificent view is akin to frolicking through a whimsical hillside.
Kristina Rolander’s energizing neon creation takes you on a visually psychedelic ride through a place you’d least expect.
Blending collage, photography, and digital technology, Shane Walsh’s works are distinct. At Bayshore, he merges an abstract painting with visual language from '90s subcultures. Download the Artivive App on your phone to view this mural as a mind-blowing, interactive augmented reality experience.
Revered local artists John Kowalczyk and Fred Kaems transform monotonous parking meters into fantastical creatures, Picasso-inspired faces, and abstract shapes for the imagination.
Across from the Apple store, Kowalczyk continues charming the property with his surreal signature style of myth, math, and magic with the monster meter wall.
Bayshore art curator Emma Daisy paints geometric shapes that playfully dance and inspire viewers along their colorful exploration of The Yard.
In a tag team effort, Daisy and Dave Watkins celebrate nature in the concrete jungle by creating a delightful bouquet of blooming native florals.

Commuter, a larger-than-life mural by local designer Sid Ylagan, highlights Bayshore's business and residential areas.
Fine artists Anwar Foyd-Pruitt & Watkins collaborate on a brilliant mural continuum to show how community and connectivity are core pillars of the reimagined Bayshore.
Inspired by the lakefront and the Milwaukee Art Museum architecture, Zimmerman takes the viewer through an immersive and serene passageway connecting the parking garage to the main square.
A talented muralist, Kaems transforms what was once just a wall of utility meters into a submersive underwater submarine ship to explore freshwater fish of Lake Michigan.
Once overlooked, a parking garage now becomes a whimsical universe, offering a dash of inspirational joy, an Instagrammable moment, and an opportunity for connection.
Located by Trader Joes, Daisy and Watkins continue their uplifting collaboration to brighten the west-facing parking garage with blossoming swamp rose and phlox.
