What is Science to Street Art?
Science to Street Art is a collaborative creative placemaking and public art initiative that will highlight and promote science through street art.
This is a project of the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery, in partnership with the Madison Arts Commission (MAC), Madison Metropolitan School District (MMSD), and additional community stakeholders to support the innovative creation of street art that changes the way science story is depicted.
Street and Graffiti artists, or artist groups, interested in participating in this unique opportunity should review the call for artists and apply before 11:59pm on July 22, 2019. Selected artists, or artist groups, will be paid up to $2,000 per mural.
The selection of artists will be based on: artistic excellence; creativity; originality; technical skill; interest in collaborating with scientists to highlight science concepts; and fit for this program which intends to showcase a broad range of street art and graffiti styles.
Science to Street Art is funded in part by the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery, Madison Arts Commission, Evjue Foundation, MGE, and the Wisconsin Arts Board.
