5 Points Art Gallery & Studios is a conscious reinvestment project of a former funeral home from the 1920's converted into a mixed-use arts space embedded in the operator’s childhood North Side Milwaukee neighborhood of Harambee/Williamsburg Heights.
The 5 Points Art & Gallery & Studios building is a historical structure that formerly housed the premier, black-owned Johnson-Goolsby Funeral Home and Services. The redevelopment was revived into a mixed-use art space consisting of a 3,000 square foot art gallery with a gift shop for professional visual art exhibitions and special events, 9 artist work studios, a shared commercial kitchen for culinary artists and caterers and 2 artist residency apartments. 5 Points Art Gallery & Studios is an art exhibition space focused on increasing representation and collection of local, national, and international contemporary fine and outsider artwork by artists of color and other marginalized groups, in addition to serving as a hearth for exploration, collaboration, professional development, and business expansion in the visual, culinary, and varying art genres.
Now 100% renovated with the most recent completion (as of June 19, 2020) being the culinary arts commercial kitchen.
