Large Lady Eating, 117-119 W. Mitchell St.

"Strange Girls," 1625 S. Sixth St.

"Alive", 721 S. Second St.

Craig Pete has quite successfully translated his love of the sideshow banner idiom into a series of hand-painted billboards for La Perla, one of the hippest of Milwaukee's many fine Mexican restaurants, and perhaps the restaurant with the greatest marketing savvy of any in the area. Hats off to La Perla for its support of the arts!


Like the sign says, La Perla is located at 734 S. Fifth St., corner of Fifth and National.
