About Us

The Art Build Workers (ABW) are a group of artists, educators, designers, and photographers, and organizers based in Milwaukee, WI. We travel around the country organizing multi-day art builds that help groups, organizations, and movements amplify their messages through visual art, documentation, media, and archiving. ABW create our own graphics and work with a wide range of artists and designers to screenprint picket signs, paint parachutes and banners, and produce offset posters that change the way demonstrations look visually, while helping create a space for movements to become stronger.
