In the Heights MKE

The Milwaukee Repertory Theater produced the musical "In the Heights" and wanted to create a community engagement piece that included the people of Milwaukee. Ledesma partnered with artist Jacobo Lovo from Latino Arts, inc. to create a design that blended the Milwaukee map with cultural influences from Puerto Rican and Dominican culture, reflective of the groups of people represented in the musical. The design was sketched on a large canvas, cut into 6"x6" squares and taken to different community events, block parties, gatherings, etc. to be painted by community members. After it was gathered and completed we celbrated with the folks involved by having a dinner party to reveal the piece and see the musical "In the Heights"
