The Madison Arts and Culture Alliance in collaboration with the Downtown Development Commission and a group of extremely talented, local artists developed an art banner program that came to be known as the Sidewalk Art Gallery.
It was designed to help promote the creative work of local artists, and to recognize Madison as a premier arts destination. This exciting new public art project is the first of many new collaborations for Madison and does many things for both the artists and the community including engaging civic dialogue, providing an economic benefit, connecting artists with communities and enhancing public appreciation of art.
This gala & auction is your opportunity to take home one of these incredible, original works of art and a piece of Madison history! 100% of proceeds go to non-profit organizations and the artists. Click here to view the 16 pieces for sale and for more information on the Art Banner Program.
