Social distancing and minimizing travel can have a major impact in delaying the epidemic. Dane County is encouraging people to conduct business with County Departments via phone and email, where possible. Using prevention, we can slow the spread of the disease and protect the most vulnerable.
This Year DABL will turn its focus to helping artists build their art businesses. To support this effort, DABL will be hosting a combination of live and recorded workshops taught by artists and other professionals.
Dane County Executive Joe Parisi announced Wednesday that the Dane Arts Need Grant (DANG!) Program will receive $100,000 in additional funding to help support local artists in need. Dane Arts will administer the DANG! Program to help offset artists' costs and lost revenue during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Each time they complete a mural, DAMA is leaving behind more than just a vibrant piece of art or reminder of a unique experience — they are leaving behind a static reminder that we as neighbors should always be working to make the world around us more beautiful in whatever way we can.
The County will administer the newly launched 'Dane Arts Need Grant' program or 'DANG!'. The Program will provide $15,000 to working artists in the county, including musicians, dancers, actors/producers, poets/writers, visual artists, performers, and any individual working artist.
