Announcing the Public Art Map of Madeline Island

TOWN OF LA POINTE PUBLIC ARTS COMMITTEE ANNOUNCES THE PUBLICATION OF
THE PUBLIC ART MAP OF MADELINE ISLAND

July 13, 2020

OUR MISSION STATEMENT

The Town of La Pointe Public Arts Committee believes that public art—art that is freely accessible to all—can humanize, beautify, and invigorate our public spaces. Our committee strives to increase the cultural, social, and economic value of La Pointe by working to install art that reflects the uniqueness and diversity of our community.

The Public Art Committee was excited to discover we had a lot of interesting and beautiful art on Madeline. We decided to share what we found with the public and hired Barbara With to create a “Public Art Map of Madeline Island” with Google Maps. Each pin on the map represents a place where the public can enjoy a piece of art created by a local artist. It is separated into three areas of the island.

The downtown area is organized to be a walking tour, beginning at the LPC Art Car and ending at Island Carvers. The rest of the pieces are located at the State and Town Park and also in various locations outside of town.

Thank you to the many people who have contributed to the creation of this map. Not just the making of the art, but to the artists who provided the stories about the pieces in various places around town. Island history and local lore is included for more entertainment! Click on the legend on the left to see where each pin leads. Then click on the photos to see them all.

LPC Response to COVID-19

April 15, 2020

Dear Friends of the LaPointe Center for the Arts,

We at LPC hope this message finds you and your loved ones feeling healthy and supported during these unprecedented times. This message is to update you on our response to the COVID-19 pandemic and how it impacts our work in the community.

We remain committed to our mission of “bringing beauty and culture to Madeline Island by promoting, exhibiting, educating and selling the work of artists.” In light of this extraordinary time, we want to thank the Wisconsin Arts Board, who has awarded our funding request for the 2020 Regranting Program. Additionally, they have given us the ability to expand granting guidelines to assist struggling artists during the pandemic.

To ensure community safety, the annual Wine Tasting and Silent Auction scheduled for May 29 is on hold, as are Positivity Children’s Theatre and the Summer Concert Series. Our Regranting Program, however, still has deadlines of May 31 and October 31. Email lapointecenter@gmail.com or down-load an application at https://lapointecenter.org/grants-for-the-arts-program/.

We as a Board are in the process of determining how we will adapt to this unknown future. Given the proceeds from the Wine Tasting make up a substantial portion of our budget, your membership and donations are needed more than ever by the Madeline Island artists that we give to regularly. Your new or renewed membership will help us continue to support them in what are frightening and uncertain times for those with few resources.

Please feel free to use the paypal link below, or print the membership form and mail to

Thank you in advance for your generosity and investment in our artists. It will make a difference in their lives and in the health and security of our entire community.

Please be well,

LPC Board of Directors
