- Fall of 2006--This was IN:SITE's first time working in two neighborhoods simultaneously. IN:SITE brought in Chicago artists Chris Silva and Michael Genovese for one of the North Avenue installations.
- Spring of 2007--Due to the efforts of a new IN:SITE project manager, Lauren Bandari, IN:SITE led two tours and a public discussion about temporary public art in Bay View. A temporary art gallery opened at a site in Bay View due to the tours.
- Fall of 2007--IN:SITE collaborated with Mothers Against Gun Violence and students at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design for Chris Murphy's community involvement project "Choros." A private business, Holzmann and Associates Property Management, came forward to fund this installation.
- Spring of 2008--IN:SITE received grant money for the first time. The Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the Challenge America program of the National Endowment for the Arts matched funding from Sherman Park Community Association to install two six-month cycles of art in Sherman Park.
- Fall of 2008--Artists Stephanie Davidson and Georg Rafailidis, practicing in Germany, flew to Milwaukee to install a heat-sensitive project in Sherman Park. IN:SITE collaborated with the Performance Art Showcase to mount an installation with a performative aspect at the Department of Neighborhood Services building for November Election Day.
- Summer 2009--The Milwaukee Arts Board was the key sponsor for IN:SITE's most ambitious project, mounting eleven projects by thirteen artists on sixteen blocks of land in the Park East Corridor.
