The 'ART maniFESTation' is a collaborative project curated by RiseUP for Art, MAD, and Connecticut’s creative community.

Founded in 2012, The RiseUP for Arts is a state-wide, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) community development and creative agency.

We have completed over 75 murals and placemaking projects throughout Connecticut, we’ve worked with 40+ local artists, 500+ partners, and we host 1,000+ volunteers per year to help paint our murals. RiseUP for Arts creates public art through donations, grants, and community goodwill.

We support artists, cities, other nonprofits, companies, and local community members in making their mural projects come to life. We help create the vision and manage the entire process to beautify communities through public art. Follow on instagram: @ctmurals

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.

MAD's GOAL is to transform Connecticut into the Art Capital of the World by advocating freedom of creative expression, individual empowerment, and collective cultural elevation. Follow on instagram: @mad_we_are
