The 'ART maniFESTation' is a collaborative project curated by RiseUP for Art, MAD, and Connecticut’s creative community. The ART maniFESTation raises critical funds to support public art projects and youth arts programs for Connecticut communities.
MAD is Norwalk’s creative hub, offering a unique physical & digital space where emerging artist(s) are able to exhibit work, collaborate with fellow creatives, connect with the global art market, while being provided tools, resources, and mentorship to develop as a professional creative.
Through the space and colorful projects, we maintain our commitment to expand the MAD network of like-minded individuals who help and support the growth of one another.
