Community Mosaic Project
Show us what “social good” means to you as part of this exciting community art project!
The Community Mosaic Project brings artists, businesses, children, non-profit partners and community members together. This visual tapestry of public art tells the stories of the participants and our Washington County community.
The art installation will be showcased at the Gallery of Wisconsin Art from Saturday, September 8 – Saturday, October 27 — More than 300 6″x6″ canvases will come together to show the impact that volunteers make in our community and to celebrate, we’re throwing a party on Thursday, September 20.
This year we’re asking — What does “social good” mean to you?
Tell us through painting, drawing, photography, fiber art, three-dimensional or sculptural work. Let your creativity soar! (but please keep it friendly for the kiddos & within the confines of the provided 6″x6″ canvas)
Ready to get creative? Here’s how:
- There is no cost to participate.
- Canvases can be picked up at The Hub (303 Water St. in West Bend)
- You must fill out a Participation Agreement in order to receive your canvas. You can download & print here, or fill it out at The Hub.
- All canvases are due back to The Hub by 5:00 p.m. on Monday, August 27.
- All canvases must be returned with a completed artist statement. Lost yours? Print a new one here!
- If something comes up and you can no longer participate, let us know as soon as possible.
- Lastly, treat your canvas with care. The Volunteer Center makes a significant investment in hundreds of canvases to make this event happen.
