Online Auction To Benefit Dane Buy Local

Art is good business. Buying local is smart business. Local business supporting local artists with a first ever Buy Local Night Market – that’s Dane Arts.

This Thursday, the Dane County Cultural Affairs Commission’s Dane Arts is holding an evening of installation art, panel discussion, music, food and drink at the US Bank Building downtown.

This collaboration between local businesses and local artists will explain “This Business of Art and The Art of Business,” and why that synergy can be so important to a sense of place and to a vibrant, local community.

It’s going to be a fun night. But it is also a welcome recognition of the impact of the arts on the Dane County economy.

Dane Arts Director Mark Fraire said he hopes the event will be “worthwhile, meaningful and memorable.” We think it’ll be all that and more.
