'We see you. We hear you. We stand with you.': Milwaukee florists join the movement

Public installations are popping up around the city


They are called MILWAUKEE SEEN and they're a group of Milwaukee florists and artists are doing their part to support the Black Lives Matter Movement in their community.


"Our tagline is 'We see you. We hear you. We stand with you,” said Liz Egan of Milwaukee Seen.

The group creates public installations to promote awareness.

This piece features a large black fist adorned by brightly colored flowers.

"The flowers with the fist, it gives off a powerful message. It doesn't take away from, you know, what's actually happening. It's really nice to see the community come together," said Shanae Pitts.

The group took photos for those who stopped by and handed out free flowers.

"We hope that people feel this floral hug in a sense," Liz Egan, Milwaukee Seen:

They’re bringing joy to the community at a time when things are serious.

"I think we need more of these things in combination of everything else that's going on," said Sean Pitts.
