Unveiling Anti-Racist Mural This Saturday - 1pm to 3:30pm

The Madison Arts Commission invites you to celebrate and engage in art activism with Madison's newest outdoor public works at the Monroe Street Festival this September 25th. The Machine, a mural painted by Black, queer artist Simone Lawrence, aims to raise questions and inspire action to advance social justice and racial equity.

Emily Balsley and Pajarita Charles, residents of Dudgeon-Monroe, led the charge that sparked the formation of the Monroe Street Anti-Racism Project  (MoSAP) leading to the creation of the mural. MoSAP, a grassroots community organizing effort emerged in response to discriminatory, anti-Black flyers found scattered across their neighborhood in 2020-2021. In response, an alliance of residents joined forces to send a counter message of justice and inclusion to the neighborhood. The interest grew into an effort to use public art to raise awareness and stimulate dialogue about the critical need for ongoing action against racism.

There will be speakers from 1:00 to 1:30, plus music and children's activities from 1:30 to 3:30. For more information, click here.
