PUBLIC ART

Conservation

Public Art Stewardship is a fundamental component of Madison's Public Art Plan. We provide ongoing maintenance, monitor the collection, and work with the community to develop plans for specific sculptures that are selected "works at risk." MAC is currently updating our public art inventory and condition assessment for the City's outdoor sculpture. We know that many of the City's sculptures are in need of some conservation. Conservation and maintenance of the City's outdoor art treasures requires community input and involvement. We welcome your support of Madison's Art's Treasures.
