Portrait of Bob Uecker

Bob Uecker

One of the things we did at Maker Faire Milwaukee was something we called “Cap and Scrap”, which involved collecting up all of the plastic bottle caps we could find, and using them to create a portrait… and we figured we should honor a Milwaukee legend in the process, so Bob Uecker was the obvious choice!

We couldn’t have done this project without the help of the community. Many family members and friends collected caps, and we even had our friends from the Fort Wayne Regional Maker Faire send us a big box of caps.

And finally, artist and designer Dena Nord was instrumental in taking the project on and helping people take part in the process by gluing the caps in place. (We also had a number of other volunteers helping out during the weekend so Dena could take a break!)
