This past October brought this group of artists together (and 22 other Dane County based artists) for a juried art fair called #DABL (Dane Arts Buy Local) Night Market. This first of its kind event hosted by Dane Arts,was designed as a business to business art fair connecting Dane County based artists and businesses. DABL was produced in partnership with 100state, Absolutely Art and MadCity Bazaar, as well as many community partners.
Eugene Kim, Program Coordinator, Law & Entrepreneurship Clinic for the University of Wisconsin Law School attended the event and reached out to these artists after the event to have them featured in their new location. The brought Absolutely Art on board to assist in the curation and installation of the exhibit and to look ahead to how they can continue to bring in local artists to the space. This is a wonderful example of the power one event can have!
