Mollie Oblinger to unveil new art installation May 25 in Milwaukee

A public art project by Mollie Oblinger, associate professor of art, will be unveiled May 25 along a newly created section of the Kinnickinnic River Trail in Milwaukee. An article about the project was published May 15 on the Urban Milwaukee website.

Oblinger will attend the noon unveiling which will be held in conjunction with the annual Opening Garden Day. Oblinger’s installation is across from Pulaski Park, between West Harrison Street and the Kinnickinnic River and South 16th and 13th streets.

For the project, Bird and Bat Houses, Oblinger received support from the Milwaukee Arts Board and designed six dwellings for various species of birds, owls and bats that make their homes in southeastern Wisconsin. She was assisted by ornithologist Memuna Khan, associate professor of biology at Ripon College.

The project is part of the collaborative programming series WaterMarks: Art and Science Walks.
