Iron Board Café WI

A version of the Iron Board Café was implemented at the Milwaukee Public Library, Mitchell Street Branch in their Studio M (MarkerSpace) during an artistic residency--this space was converted into Cosecha. Each week, during the summer of 2018, the families and youth that came through the studio were given a prompt to create a piece of art--masks, zines, etc. Ledesma would cook a Puerto Rican dish that was then exchanged with the community artists for their art. It served as a cross-cultural exchange with teachings on the value of art, dedication and investment of their time.
