Brewers Community Achievers: Paul Druecke

The Brewers Community Achievers Program recognizes residents throughout the state of Wisconsin each month during the season for displaying extraordinary efforts in their community.

All adults and school-aged children throughout the state of Wisconsin are eligible to participate in the program. Fans can nominate their Community Achiever online or pick up a nomination form at the Guest Relations Booth on the Field Level Concourse at Miller Park during the season.

This month’s honoree is Paul Druecke, an essential part of Milwaukee’s growing conceptual art scene and a positive figure in Riverwest since the late ’90s.

In 2000, Paul christened a portion of the Holton St. Bridge as Blue Dress Park and has co-hosted dozens of events there. The park represents people’s ability to imagine things as greater than what they appear and in 2010, Paul, along with a group of artists, historians and city planners, started an advocacy group to celebrate the existence and values of the park.

Paul’s years of dedication to the conceptual art community and his 15 years of volunteering commitment to the under-appreciated spaces in Milwaukee have brought awareness to the under-recognized parts of Milwaukee.

Thank you, Paul for your passion for the arts!
