Salvation Army Milwaukee's Art of the Red Kettle

The Art of the Red Kettle is a new initiative from The Salvation Army of Milwaukee County Cold Spring. Ten local artists including myself have been selected to transform 10 of their iconic red kettles by painting them with a unique design. The kettles will be on display at select locations throughout the county between November 9 and December 24.

Prizes will be awarded based on Most Creative, Most Funds Raised and Most Social Media Likes. The goal of the contest is to help The Salvation Army raise funds for its 2018 Red Kettle Campaign which supports over 80 programs in the Milwaukee Community.

To vote for your favorite kettle, visit the Salvation Army Milwaukee Cold Spring Facebook page and go to the post with all of the kettles (pinned to the top of their page). Click “like” on your favorite, that counts as a vote!

On their page, you’ll also find the calendar of where the kettles will be displayed over the next month and a half.

If you are interested in supporting your favorite kettle, starting November 9th you'll be able to visit or text KETTLEART to 51555 to donate to your favorite kettle.

Here’s some progress shots of my kettle! As well as a little write up about it. Here
