Maps showing each of the locations and studios of the tour will be available for purchase beginning May 31st at the Birdhouse at 266 Main Street; Drip Café at 34 Main Street; the Museum of Early Trades and Crafts at 9 Main Street; Rose City Framemakers at 20 Waverly Place; and Sages Pages at 300 Main Street.

The Madison Artist Studio Tour will be launched from Waverly Place where students and community members can join Madison art teacher Michael Watson in the creation of a life-size 3-D sculpture in recognition of community spirit and the arts. Following the earthquake in Japan, Madison students created Japanese paper cranes and learned about how they could help the victims of the quake. The sculpture will continue these lessons and will be a tribute to the Japanese culture. Creation of the sculpture will begin at 10 a.m. near the clock on Waverly Place.

A free post-tour reception will be held from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. at the Museum of Early Trades and Crafts, 9 Main Street, Madison. The reception is open to the public.
