Dane Arts Mural Arts (DAMA) is a public art program 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.
More than 40 murals have been created since 2014 - our first year. These mural projects focus on under-resourced urban and rural communities throughout Dane County. Join us as we continue to impact more Dane County citizens!
Local artists learn the process of creating community murals. They use art as a tool to make a difference in the lives of Dane County citizens.
Artists work with community volunteers to physically and socially shape their neighborhoods through the creation of meaningful works of art.
Youth learn mural-making, job-readiness and portfolio development skills, while making major contributions to their communities.
