The Brewers are killing it. The Bucks are killing it. Milwaukee is on fire right now and Milwaukee artist Shawn Dekay wants to celebrate this time in our city with a proper mural. The first part of the mural featuring Brewers and MLB MVP Christian Yelich was painted last year as the Brewers entered the playoffs. Now, with the Brewers starting their season off hot and the Bucks getting their own playoffs run going, Shawn is looking to go all out and knock this project out of the park by joining Yelich with NBA MVP hopeful and Bucks all-star, Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Phase 1 of the mural has already gained much notoriety from the media and public. And while Shawn has already started on Phase 2, he’s realized how much more this mural could be if only he had a little more to work with. To help in finishing this celebratory piece off proper, Shawn is looking to raise funds to purchase a 2-story scaffolding and other necessary supplies. The mural currently covers about 1 story worth of wall space and with the scaffolding he would then be able to reach the top of the 2 story wall and really go all out in repping for the City with this project. The scaffolding would also aid in any future public mural projects he takes on.
Please help Shawn in celebrating this exciting time in our city by donating to his mural fund and helping to spread the word! https://www.cbs58.com/news/our-town-our-crew-our-mvp-local-artist-paints-brewers-mural-in-milwaukees-walkers-point-neighborhood https://www.tmj4.com/sports/milwaukee-sports-doubleheader-draws-even-more-excitement-wednesday https://urbanmilwaukee.com/2019/04/05/eyes-on-milwaukee-giannis-mural-planned-for-walkers-point/ https://milwaukeerecord.com/arts/giannis-has-almost-joined-yelich-on-walkers-point-mural/ https://fox6now.com/2018/10/10/hes-so-exciting-artist-creates-1-of-a-kind-christian-yelich-mural-in-walkers-point/ https://onmilwaukee.com/sports/articles/yelich-mural-dream-lab.html
