Science to Street Art – An Experiment in Placemaking

The Science to Street Art initiative is a collaborative project that aims to visually inspire STEAM education and careers through the innovative planning, design and management of public spaces known as placemaking.

UW-Madison scientists and regional street artists will team to create science themed educational pieces in areas whose populations are generally underserved and unrepresented. Science to Street Art will culminate with the creation of five innovative and diverse murals that promote science and diversity with an unveiling in 2019.

Mural locations will be determined based on communities that lack public art. If you have a location that you think fits with the project goals please email Ginger Ann at ginger.ann@wid.wisc.edu. We value community feedback!

Help to make this project happen!

Science to Street Art needs your help! While we are currently applying for funding at a national level, the project cannot be fully realized without additional support. In order to bring in nationally recognized street artists to join in the project we will need to generate additional funding. A donation of any size will help to make this project a reality.

The first 10 donations of $25.00 or more will receive a complimentary WID mug. Mugs can be picked up from the Discovery Building.
