Reviews for Redline Milwaukee Inc
I am currently an Artist in Residence at RedLine Milwaukee and have had a great experience so far. My work has taken a big leap and I enjoy the support of the other artists and mentors there. RedLIne is an art incubator that provides mentoring, professional development and studio space to emerging artists at an affordable rate, as well and youth and community education. RedLine is still a relatively new non-profit and it is exciting to see the organization grow!
