“Art on a mission” might be a cliché, but Mark Fraire makes it fresh and relevant...Several new initiatives involve reaching out to the community. One program connects patrons and businesses with local artists, building on the “buy local” movement.
It’s like a craft fair, an arts fair on the square only we took it to a night time location with music and dance and a DJ, food and drink and visual artists. And we invited all businesses we could contact to come to this directly for the purpose of buying art from local artists. We have ‘Buy Local Farming’ and ‘Buy Local Products.’ I say ‘Buy Local Art.’
With arts providing at least $145 million to Dane County annually, partnership aims to cultivate budding potential of local creators.
