Science Art Fusion with a Community Focus

Science to Street Art is a collaborative initiative that aims to visually inspire Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM) education and careers through the innovative planning, design and management of public spaces known as Placemaking.

The initiative is two-fold:

  • the creation of science civic art spotlighting graffiti and hip-hop art forms

  • a festival of Madison Metropolitan School District workshops and Community Activities connecting street art to science curriculum and story
