The Milwaukee Made project is an annual social editorial project being organized and produced by photographer James Holveck of White Night Photography. The mission of Milwaukee Made is to showcase the companies (big and small) which have helped define the history of Milwaukee and which are leading the city and the country into the future.
Inspiration for the Milwaukee Made project was the Tom Fruin stained glass structure which was commissioned by Peggy Coakley and sits atop the Coakley Brother building in Walkers Point. The illuminated structure boldly stands out against a city backdrop. A city which still struggles against being defined as yet another city in the rustbelt of America. The delicate but industrial structure has come to represent the merging of industrial manufacturing and creative expression.
