Artist Statement

Shelby Keefe

There is a great need in this inner city Milwaukee neighborhood, Metcalfe Park, for safe places for children to play. Butterfly Park is pictured here to reflect the joy children have when provided with such simple things as swing sets. Well-maintained and safe parks are essential and provide safe passage to and from school. Crosswalks and governed intersections are necessary to slow down traffic and make it safe for young people to cross the street.
