Children's Experiences In 2022
Most everything at Project North is open for children to be a part of but here are a few activities created specifically for our little humans.
Wes Tank Performances
Wes Tank is a multimedia performing artist based in Milwaukee, WI. He is the founder and Director of the production company TankThink, which creates uplifting, community-driven content and live experiences for global audiences. In 2020 his self-produced YouTube series—Dr. Seuss Raps Over Dr. Dre Beats—became a viral sensation, creating a worldwide fanbase of children, families, and educators. As homes, businesses and institutions initiated lockdown, Wes gave parents - suddenly faced with navigating their children’s education and socialization - a fresh way to teach and connect with their kids. An official YouTube “Creator on the Rise,” Tank’s work has been featured in Variety, Oprah Magazine, Kidoodle TV CBS Sunday Morning, CNN.com, Upworthy, The Official Dr. Seuss YouTube Channel, The Today Show Australia, The Try Guys YouTube Channel, Ozzy Man Reviews, and Huffington Post.
A Cube of the North by Wolfgang Ryan
Approximately 51” cubed, recycled pallets, found lumber, branches, sticks, paint. Viewers are invited to leave their mark by painting the work.
Bricolage artist, Wolfgang Ryan, repurposes everyday items discarded by society to create paintings, collage, assemblage, and sculpture in an ongoing project to salvage the world. Ryan’s ersatz works often toy with the tension between utility and uselessness. His art objects have been exhibited in museums and galleries, and are held in private collections.
