Karin Wolf, who oversees the City of Madison’s arts grant programs as an arts administrator, wrote in the latest issue of Our Lives Magazine about the tension between rigid city rules and the unsanctioned spontaneity of street art. Wolf’s story also previews the Momentum Urban Arts Fest, taking place August 24 and organized by Momentum Art Tech, a store that sells street-art supplies, provides graffiti lessons, and works with local businesses to create street-art-style murals. For our latest podcast short, Wolf sat down to talk about how the city can become a better place for street art.

Corrections: The written and audio versions of this piece initially stated that Momentum Art Tech was located in Monona and that an event was co-presented by the Madison East Side Business Association. The business is located in Madison, and the organization’s correct name is the Monona East Side Business Alliance. The written version of the piece has been corrected.

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