The “We Are One” was installed in an amazing way by artist Ken Brown in the summer of 2018. It’s located over a perilous staircase, and Brown was determined to see it installed, no matter what. So he painted this beautiful, stained-glass-inspired mural by hand using a long stick, with a series of paintbrushes tied to the ends, to make this original artwork possible. This installation was an amazing thing to witness. The metallic paints were specially sourced for the effect he needed.
Ken Brown originally earned his BA from Kentucky State University, but currently is a full-time artist here in Milwaukee, WI. Among his career highlights has been teaching art for over a decade to middle and high school students, which has allowed him to share his passion and love for art to many students and families.
