Artists in Our Community

Wauwatosa is a community full of artists, with many earning recognition on the local, national and international level. Art in all forms has been a major facet in the Wauwatosa community for years, which is evidenced in the quality galleries, local theatrical and musical troupes and preservation programs such as the Wauwatosa Historical Society’s award-winning Tosa High Project (an initiative that identified and restored historic 1930s murals found hidden under plaster in the original high school’s lobby).


Each spring, art-lovers have a chance to stroll the Village and Milwaukee’s West Side businesses during Artwalk, an event featuring original artwork for sale by prominent local artists. The Firefly Art Fair is held every summer in the gardens of the Kneeland-Walker House, a restored 1890s Victorian mansion now in use as the Wauwatosa Historical Society’s home. The Wauwatosa Historical Society also presents the Plein Air Affair, an outdoor painting competition and sale for adults and children, adding to the rich variety of art based activities community members can enjoy.
