Title

Elver Park Neighborhood Center Teen Program/Elver Park Art Collaboration request from Wisconsin Youth Company to donate a mural for placement on the north wall of the Elver Park wooden shelter between the playground and tennis courts.

 

Body

The Elver Park Neighborhood Center and Wisconsin Youth Company are requesting approval to install a mural on the Elver Old shelter for up to two years.  The mural will be designed and installed by youth who attend Madison and Middleton Schools during the Summer of 2021 or possibly 2022.  Messages and images contained within the mural are intended to uplift and empower youth from BIPOC and other marginalized communities. All materials must meet the requirements specified by the Parks Division. The Artists will provide final design to the Parks Division for review and approval and notify the area Alder.   After two years have passed, the mural installation will be considered for removal. The decision on removal will depend on its current condition and the interest in doing necessary repairs. Parks staff will consult with Wisconsin Youth Company and representatives from the Elver Park Neighborhood Center regarding the mural’s future. If the mural is damaged during the two year timeframe, Parks staff will again consult with WYC and EPNC representatives prior to removing the mural. After the two year time period, Parks staff will inspect the mural on a yearly basis for damage and remove the mural if it is damaged and repairs are not forthcoming.
