Middle sequence of animation from collaborative project with Brandon Bauer for the Make Your Own History group exhibition at the Blatz building in Milwaukee.

Our project paired 15 animated gif portraits of the 15 beer barons that grew Milwaukee into the largest brewing industry in the country with 15 text-based clippings from the 1952 brewery union strike that some believe ended the industries presence in Milwaukee. These two eras happened about 100 years apart but are inseparable from each other and the city Milwaukee.
