Milwaukee Street Train Painting using General Finishes Milk Paint

The train painting is the first of many projects that are planned for a yearlong temporary art initiative along 20 blocks of Fond du Lac Ave. With buckets of bright-colored paint and wide paintbrushes, dozens of volunteers took to the street Sunday and created a work of art out of an otherwise dark city intersection below a wide and low railroad viaduct. Called "A Common Denominator," the graphic painting, made by local artists, neighbors and inmates, among others, brings a cheery choo-choo train to the corner of W. Fond du Lac Ave. and W. Locust St.
