A new work of public art is coming to Middleton. The Middleton Salt mural tells the story of what makes Middleton beautiful, and what defines us as good neighbors. It recognizes the invisible work that goes into making a neighborhood great: from the people who maintain Middleton's roads, high quality water systems, and award-winning parks to Middleton's commitment to prairie conservation and renewable energy. This invisible work is like deep roots in a deep-rooted community.
Artists Jenie Gao and Rhea Ewing started the community mural process in 2018 with interviews of community members and workers at Middleton Operations Center. Students at Clark Street Community School helped to paint this mural with the Dane Arts Mural Arts team. The mural is well under way. Phase 1 (on the south wall) was completed October 2019. Phase 2 (east wall) will be installed in 2020.
To date, we have raised $21,500 of the full $60,000 needed to complete the mural. Ask how to contribute today.
