2022 Art Poster

Each year for over four decades, the Dane County Cultural Affairs Commission's annual art poster has showcased a different, talented local artist. This tradition lives on in 2022. Poster donations help support the Commission's mission and programs: fostering public participation, increasing access, and forging alliances in support of local arts, culture, and history.

About the Artwork:

"Inspired by the Impressionists, I try to capture everyday moments in life worth holding onto, to bring JOY to a canvas and share it with others. I paint with a loose, quick brush and colorful palette. My work is energetic, bright, often spontaneous, and has a Modern Impressionistic feel. Helping the environment, being present with children, and celebrating seasons have been consistent passions throughout my 26 years of painting. 

Madison has been my home since 2002.  I’m grateful for our Dane County Parks and trails where I hike and draw regularly.  Visiting these magical places often leads to new paintings.  When a painting inspires someone else to hike, learn from, or protect feels complete. As Dane County residents, we are lucky to have so many different parks and natural areas to explore and learn from.  Painting these places is my best way to communicate that."   - Molly Krolczyk
