A comics panel reads: "A Fair Artist Wages Comic. 3 Panels. Madison, Wisconsin. This is a BAD DEAL, so let's talk about it! One, it's shit pay. ($300 + materials) Two, it has a lot of expectations for shit pay. *Complete design for approval. *Prep + prime your own hydrant. *Participate in artist talks. *Paint approved design. That's a lot of fucking labor, Madison Public Art Project (MPAP)." The panel shows a poster for the "Vibrant Hydrant" project and an illustrated depiction of the artist.

Local art shows how people in Madison think and feel—how Madison looks, and how Madison looks at itself.
