What is DAMA?


WHAT IS DAMA?

Dane Arts Mural Arts (DAMA) is a new public art program by Dane Arts that trains local artists to become community artists who use mural-making to beautify neighborhoods and make a difference in the lives of youth. 

DAMA empowers artists, neighborhoods and youth to become change agents, collaborating on projects which physically and socially improve communities.

Seven new murals were created in 2015 - our first year. These mural projects focused on under-resourced urban and rural communities throughout Dane County. Join us as we impact more Dane County citizens in 2016!
