I am Sherman Pitts, an artisit currently located in Milwaukee, WI. In 2009 I received a BFA from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in Art Education. Born in Milwaukee, I have deep intimate feelings about the potential of Milwaukee as a city and as an art center. In 2013 I was selected to display work in the Wisconsin 30 exhibition, parallel to 30 Americans, in the Milwaukee Art Museum. I feel a responsibility to this city for recognizing me as an artist and a duty to uphold our city as an art metropolis. In reaction to this feeling, I have created an organization run by Milwaukee Artists called, “Today’s Artist Guild” (T.A.G.), which operates as a non profit serving the artists and communities of Greater Milwaukee.
