Joshua Marquardt ’04

“Art City Wraps, Art City Signs LLC., is an Oshkosh, Wis., based creative company specialized in the design, print and installation of large pieces of artwork. Art City was started in 2003 by UWO alum Joshua Marquardt shortly after graduating with a bachelor of fine arts with a print emphasis. The company was humbly created over the years with the goal to foster the local community and use Oshkosh as a base of operations while performing work all over the United States. The first brick and mortar facility was opened in 2007 with 600 square feet of space, compared to the current location with over 5,000 square feet used in creating massive prints that are then sculpted onto various three dimensional objects like buildings, trucks and trailers and boats. This specialized skill set was further developed through training and workshops with the 3M Corporation and Avery Dennison, and has led to competitions throughout America and Europe.

Through these creative adventures, the Oshkosh company has worked with many great companies; highlights include the Green Bay Packers, NFL, Milwaukee Bucks, NBA, Crossfit Games, SXSW and working on the graphic installations for Superbowl LIV through Superbowl LVII. The scale of work, and the rate at which it can be produced and installed is continuously growing for Art City who is still pushing its creative boundaries with size and color and is excited for the day that the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh will invite them to inspire its community with a larger than life installation of color and shape…maybe a giant art piece from floor to ceiling in the library glass stairwell, maybe creating a locker room inspired for a team victory; or just maybe, completely covering the Kolf Sports Center in Black and Yellow like a Titan!”
