Artist Application 

LGBTQ Mural Project 

This project is a collaborative effort of Rainbow Over Wisconsin, Art Garage, Old Main Street Inc., The Pollination Project/Canary Fund, and United Arts. The original idea grew out of a conversation between Martha and United Arts (UA). UA is a group of artists, representatives from various higher education institutions, art galleries, and underrepresented communities. UA is dedicated to supporting and promoting artists on the margins and providing ways and means for underrepresented communities to be seen and have their voices heard. All of our community partners understand the need, and the importance of, LGBTQ visibility in Green Bay.
