Working together, the DDC and MACA have forged a partnership that focuses on creating community space, encouraging people to enjoy the beauty and interest that art provides. Placed in public sites, this art is there for everyone, a form of collective community expression and a colorful and beautiful way to enhance our vibrant downtown.
The participating artists are: Dani Pietrowski, Chris Kappmeier, Corey Bohner, Leslie Wallant, Leah O’Gorman, Scot Lukasc, Sally Lebwohl, Dennis McKee and Beth Layne.
The Madison Art & Culture Alliance (MACA), is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit coalition of arts organizations, cultural institutions, historic societies, colleagues, and friends, dedicated to encouraging collaborations among the wide-ranging cultural offerings in Madison. Their ongoing mission is to help strengthen our community through arts participation, recognizing that Madison, New Jersey is a town with rich and diverse cultural activities.
The Downtown Development Commission (DDC) was initiated by Mayor Elizabeth Baumgartner and the Borough Council in October of 1981, following a study by Projects for Public Space, funded through a Dodge Foundation Grant. The DDC is focused on coordinating redevelopment activities in the downtown district to foster a closer working relationship between all segments of the Madison community. The group works closely with the Chamber of Commerce, Historic Preservation Commission, Madison Arts & Culture Alliance, and other groups to enhance the beauty and ambiance of Madison’s shopping areas.
The Hartley Dodge Memorial Building is located at 50 Kings Road (opposite the Madison Train Station). For more information you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
