Pavement Painting Project

September 12, 2014 2:01 PM

Madison's second pavement painting project was recently kicked off in the Knutson Circle cul-de-sac on Knutson Drive on the Northside of Madison. Community members came together to paint a sunflower, a common sight in the gardens around the neighborhood, with two cranes, the symbol of the Northside, in the center. Once again, this temporary public art project provided an opportunity for neighborhood residents to come together and create something to symbolize their community bond and sense of place. From children to the elderly, a great time was had by all!

This project also marks the beginning of a new relationship: sister neighborhoods. While only in its beginning stages, sister neighborhoods will mimic a sister city relationship within the Madison area and assist them in similar placemaking activities. I hope you agree with me that this is a great idea and I look forward to more and similar partnerships!

The next pavement painting project is set to kick off on September 20th from 9AM to 2PM at Turbot Drive and Sunfish Court in the Leopold neighborhood. Come by and join in on the fun.
