Arts Day 2019


The new year has brought Wisconsin a new administration, new and returning legislators, and the 2019-2021 state budget process. Now is the time to get involved. If you care about Wisconsin's future, be part of Arts Day and speak up for the arts and creativity throughout Wisconsin on Arts Day 2019 – Tuesday, March 12, 2019, in Madison. Register today!


Investment in the arts and creativity is an investment in Wisconsin’s future. Arts Day 2019 celebrates the diversity and variety of Wisconsin’s entrepreneurial arts and creative sector, demonstrates the ways in which creativity revitalizes communities across the state, and shares those stories with representatives and decision-makers.

Activists come to Arts Day from Altoona to Wisconsin Dells and hundreds of other communities around the state.   We expect a great turnout in 2019 and exciting policy and program issues for discussion and action. 

We are thrilled that incoming Secretary of  the Department of Tourism Sara Meaney, and the new Wisconsin Poet Laureate Margaret Rozga, will be featured speaker sat Arts Day!

Arts Day 2019 activities will include:

  • Constituent meetings with representatives

  • Arts showcases and exhibits at the Overture Center

  • Artist in residence (TBA) and art making

  • Presentations and workshops economic and community development through the arts and creativity, arts education, and quality of life initiatives involving the arts

  • Networking, learning, friend-making, inspiration!​

In addition, you should register for the Wisconsin Creative Summit on creative placemaking, happening the day before Arts Day at the Overture Center.  Expand and enhance your trip to Madison with this pre-Arts Day networking and learning conference.
