BANNERS ARE UP!!!!!
The 2014 DDC/MACA Sidewalk Gallery is a vibrant exhibit showcasing the work of twelve talented New Jersey artists. Conceived in 2013 as a joint project with the Downtown Development Commission and the Madison Arts & Culture Alliance, the exhibit quickly became one of the most talked about art events in the area. This unique public art exhibition truly is a collaborative effort by a small group of local community-minded people and the 2014 exhibit has proven to be bigger and better than last year.
This year we are fortunate to have twelve artists (five of whom participated last year) who have created 24 imaginative, vibrant and exciting works of art that add incredible energy and beauty to Madison’s downtown. The participating artists are: Medy Bozkurtian, Danielle Auriemma-D’Amico, Dan Fenelon, Susan Gepford, Tine Graham, Amy Thompson Hill, Chris Kappmeier, Sally Lebwohl, Maria Lupo, Gail Marfdin, Dennis McKee and Kris Pfeifer.
All the art banners are located on Main Street and Waverly Place in downtown Madison and will be on exhibit through the end of September. After September, the works will be removed from the banner poles and made ready for public auction. The Gala Auction event is scheduled for Friday, October 17. More details about the auction will be forthcoming, but it is an event that you won’t want to miss.
