I hadn't noticed these until I took my daughter to the Central Library a few weekends ago. We walked from the Library to the Milwaukee Public Museum and, right there, under our feet were dinosaur feet! Well, painted dinosaur footprints.
Much like the keyboard near Cathedral Square Park, the dino prints are a fun, creative way to bring new life and a new sense of discovery to Downtown.
Check them out between the library and the museum on 8th Street. There are two crosswalks – at Wisconsin Avenue and Wells Street – with the prints. They were installed by the Department of Public Works in September.
A life-long and passionate community leader and Milwaukeean, Jeff Sherman is a co-founder of OnMilwaukee.
He grew up in Wauwatosa and graduated from Marquette University, as a Warrior. He holds an MBA from Cardinal Stritch University, and is the founding president of Young Professionals of Milwaukee (YPM)/Fuel Milwaukee.
Early in his career, Sherman was one of youngest members of the Greater Milwaukee Committee, and currently is involved in numerous civic and community groups - including board positions at The Wisconsin Center District, Wisconsin Club and Marcus Center for the Performing Arts. He's honored to have been named to The Business Journal's "30 under 30" and Milwaukee Magazine's "35 under 35" lists.
He owns a condo in Downtown and lives in greater Milwaukee with his wife Stephanie, his son, Jake, and daughter Pierce. He's a political, music, sports and news junkie and thinks, for what it's worth, that all new movies should be released in theaters, on demand, online and on DVD simultaneously.
He also thinks you should read OnMilwaukee each and every day.
