You Are Beautiful Mural CELEBRATION!

Madison’s You Are Beautiful mural is up at Art In (1444 East Washington)! Join us in celebrating the work of queer and trans artists at our community celebration on Sunday, August 6th at 1pm in front of the mural. We’ll have lemonade, face painting, game playing, art making, friendship, and magic waiting for you! Please RSVP on our Facebook event.

While this celebration is FREE and open to the public, The ArtWrite Collective will happily accept donations for future youth programming at this celebration. We are deep in the planning stages with organizing partners at the Arts + Literature Laboratory for new middle and high school programming in literary arts, visual arts, and community art practice beginning in January 2018! We would like this programming to be totally free for youth and families, and we need your help to make that happen. Contact us at [email protected] for details.

This mural was possible thanks to support from Madison Arts Commission, Awesome Foundation, 1000 Friends of Wisconsin, Tenney-Lapham Neighborhood Association, Wisconsin NOW, programs of UW-Madison, Artist & Craftsman Supply Madison, Ian’s Pizza Madison, Art In, and individual donors. Thanks to these sponsors, artists were paid for their labor, youth artists received art supply stipends for their own creative practice, all painting + installation supply costs were covered, and everyone was fed.

This mural is by queer and trans youth, mentors, and community members… and it’s for all of us! See you there!
