A hometown artistic touch
MANITOWOC, Wis. (WBAY) – If you drive around Manitowoc, it’s hard not to notice John Peroutka’s artwork, whether it’s the newly dedicated American flag sculpture at Red Arrow Park, or a storefront he designed off Calumet Avenue.“I think the hard part is always coming up with the design and getting that all approved and then once that’s all out of the way the work is actually the fun part,” says Peroutka. After graduating from UW-Green Bay (’94, Art) with a fine arts degree, Peroutka worked as a graphic designer until the Wisconsin Maritime Museum came calling in 2005. “This was actually the first place that really gave me a couple things to do that I thought, well this is probably enough for me not to have to do my day job,” says Peroutka with a smile.
