Black Cat Alley was pretty easy to find in the alley behind the Oriental Theater and will make a great neighborhood even more attractive to visitors I'm sure.

The art featured those little scan barcode thingys for more information in some spots, but I just moved through the crowd of Sunday Packer fans and let the art speak for itself.
Some were tall, some were small, and fun was being had by all. I suggest you stop by and check them out for yourself, maybe get a Colectivo coffee while you're there.
I was delighted to find koi on the alley under my feet, and I wondered how many folks noticed since they were so busy looking up. They are the work of Jeremy Novy, a graduate of Milwaukee’s Peck School of the Arts and a nationally renowned street artist. This is not my first encounter with the whimsical koi, I first noticed them in the summer of 2013 but my shoes were orange that year!
Apparently the koi were already in the alley, but the artist gave them a touch-up as long as he was in the neighborhood! Linking up to Monday Mural.
