Monona's Street Art Scene with Kristie Goforth

*Offsite
Saturday, Nov 12, 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Kristie Goforth is a member of the Sault Tribe of Chippewa (Ojibway) Indians and is an arts supporter that lives in Monona. She currently serves as a Dane County Parks Commissioner and is the Executive Director of Free Bikes 4 Kidz Madison. She has served as an elected official on Monona City Council and was formerly on the Dane Arts Cultural Affairs Grant Review Panel.

In 2019, Kristie co-founded the Momentum Urban Arts Fest that brought in 80 artists from around the country for a live paint street art festival in Monona and on the east side of Madison. Kristie will host us at the site of one of graffiti walls on Monona Drive and will present on how art can boost tourism, increase diversity in communities, and bring people together. 

This event will take place outside of Handel Automotive at 5705 Monona Dr. All are welcome.

*If the parking lot is full, additional parking may be available at Woodland Park (across the street at the end of the block) or the former Village Lanes Bowling Alley.
