AWE Holiday Ornament
Share a creative light and memories with loved ones with AWE’s ornament. The design for the ornament came from the Artistic Board-Up project at 3907 W. Vliet St. With support from the City of Milwaukee Department of Neighborhood Services, this project was created by youth from Our Next Generation, and professional local artists Leilani Lopez and Fred Kaems. The ornament was made by professional engraver Akai Coit. The candle is seen in the board-up project, as a way to reflect the light of Vliet St. and the neighborhood. The ornament uses the same candle image in loving memory of Sareyi Ahmed, who participated in early planning sessions of the board-up project, but due to a tragic swimming accident, passed away a few weeks prior to the celebration.
