At the end of April, “Milwaukee’s largest local music event” brought more than 70 musical acts and visual artists to close to 30 venues in five neighborhoods for four days of fun and philanthropy known as Arte Para Todos. On top of being downright awesome, the fourth annual Arte Para Todos also functioned as a benefit. All funds the event raised will go to support art programs throughout Milwaukee, with the vast majority of this year’s earnings promised to four Milwaukee schools.
The first three Arte installments took in a total of about $60,000. Now that the donations have been tallied and collected, another $18,371.53 can be added to the total. That impressive sum will be donated to Albert E. Kagel Elementary, Doerfler Elementary School, South Division High School, and Milwaukee Public Schools’ Express Yourself program.
It’s safe to say Arte Para Todos 2018 was a success. Anyone who donated their time, money, resources, venues, and artistic talent to the event should pat themselves on the back.
