Chop from the top

I wouldn't go so far as to call this art maybe, but it's still important. The first #wiunion related graffiti I've seen in two weeks of protests.

(R)amped & Madison Skatepark Fund

Awesome collaboration of causes here:
World renowned artist, Sofia Maldonado painted a quarter pipe skate ramp LIVE... The exhibit will be on display until March 22nd... Want to know the best part? The Madison Skatepark Fund will hopefully be able to auction the art off (in March) as a fundraiser for our cause! The Union galleries are always free and open to the public.
I missed the night Sofia did the live painting, but fortunately the exhibit runs through the end of March and can be easily checked out any time. For more on the Madison Skatepark Fund, too, check their website here.

The girl on the wall

Dig this one - something wonderfully eerie about it. 

CV spotted this piece on Atwood Ave. and was kind enough to snap a photo and send it in (remember, anyone is welcome to submit a photo of street art work to me at madstreetart at gmail dot com - just so long as it's from the Madison, WI area).

Apologies for the lack of posts lately - my life has been busier than usual (if that's possible) and between that and all this damn snow it's been difficult to get out to look for art. Will do my best to keep an eye out, though. Thanks for your patience!
