Jim Goldberg is looking for "Milwaukee's best."

Are you "Milwaukee's best" of anything?

Artist Jim Goldberg is in town working on his collaborative project, "Postcards from America," which the Milwaukee Art Museum is commissioning.

The project features 11 photographers who have gathered in various locations in the country to document the people and the place. Other installments of the project have taken place in California, Utah, New York and Florida.

The project will culminate in an exhibit at the Milwaukee Art Museum in 2014.

Goldberg has already captured many Brew City photos and is currently looking for interesting Milwaukee people to photograph.

He recently posted a craigslist ad that included the copy, "I am a renowned artist visiting Milwaukee for a project. I am interested in photographing ‘Milwaukee's Best.’ This can be Milwaukee’s best citizen, Milwaukee’s oldest person, Milwaukee’s most decorated veteran, Milwaukee’s thinnest person, Milwaukee’s most decorated girl scout, Dustin Diamond-unusual people with unusual interests. I am respectful and will give a picture to anyone who is interested in being photographed."

Personally, I'd like to think I'm Milwaukee's best parallel parker, but my boss Andy Tarnoff might argue that he is. (We are both quite gifted in the art.) I am also, quite possibly, the city's best jaywalker and would be willing to bet that I ingest more hummus than anyone else in town.

If you or someone you know is one of Milwaukee’s very best, go here for more info.
