On Sunday, September 18, the East Side’s new “street art destination,” Black Cat Alley, celebrated its grand opening. The two-block alley, located between Kenilworth Blvd. and Ivanhoe Place between the Oriental Theater and the Prospect Colectivo, is home to a host of murals created by a group of jury-selected international, national, and local artists and students. Above the alley, on the south-facing wall of the Oriental, is a self-portrait by European artist MTO entitled “A French Man In Milwaukee.” You know, that big frog thing.

Here’s a look inside the rest of Black Cat Alley. (More info on the artist can be found here.)
