Art Poster

Each year, for nearly 40 years, the Dane County Arts and Cultural Affairs Commission's annual art poster has showcased a different, talented local artist. This tradition lives on in 2019. Poster donations help support the Commission's mission and programs: fostering public participation, increasing access, and forging alliances in support of local arts, culture and history.
