WUD Art is proud to present the launch of the Art En Route project, a cutting edge exhibition through the junction of public art and public transportation in Madison, WI!
This project pairs creative writers with visual artists to create uniquely commissioned works of art. The final, collaborative works are photographed and installed on the exterior bus wraps of various Madison Metro Transit buses running throughout Madison from October 1st 2017 - January 20th, 2018. The original artwork, at the same time, are presented in an exhibition “Art En Route” at Gallery 1308 in Union South from October 7th - November 17th, 2017.
An En Route is co-curated by Yusi Liu and Alex Polach from WUD Art Committee. Participating Dane County-based literary and visual artists are Michael Hirshon, Fabu Phillis Carter, Rebecca Kautz, Gwendolyn Rice, Holly AnneBurns, Caleb Weisnicht, Yeonhee Cheong, Antonio Byrd, Beth Racette,Heath Langreck, Jj D'Onofrio, Mackenzie Berry, Johnson Vaj, Claude Clayton-Smith, Ryan Haimerl, and Brad Foster.
Art En Route is fortunate to be working with two local non-profit arts organizations for many aspects of this project: Arts + Literature Laboratory and Madison Community Discourse. Both organizations are dedicated to bettering our Madison community through open discussion and community participation.
Join us for the exhibition opening reception on Saturday, Oct 7th from 2-4PM at Gallery 1308. At this exhibition, you can get the first look of Art En Route, as well as speak with various writers and artists involved in the project. We hope to see you there!
