Building Inclusive Communities Featuring Artists from the Downtown Street Art and Mural Project in Madison, WI.

A Brief History of Street Art:

Street Art, defined as visual art that is presented in public settings, has found its place at the core of contemporary art, but its origins were far from an accepted form of artistic expression. The Urban Art, Guerrilla Art, or Graffiti that began to appear in the 1920’s and 30’s in New York City was the work of local gangs. By the 1970’s a cultural movement had begun and Street Art became a response by young people to their socio-political environment, rebelling against popular culture and mass media reality.  Eventually, the Street Art phenomenon gained the attention and respect of the rest of the art world and was soon considered a legitimate form of artistic expression, in spite of the fact that it remained largely an illegal activity.  Today Street Art is represented in galleries and art markets around the world and major cities host Street Art Festivals.

Live Music at Hawk's Mill

Jim has been playing guitar for 40 + years. After many of years playing with the band Transition, Jim "transitioned" to solo shows. Starting out with strumming his acoustic guitar, it slowly evolved into a performance with a drum machine and an electronic vocal harmonizer. He plays a great deal of music from the 60s through present covering rock, country and acoustic music. What you hear sounds like a full band, but when you look at the stage it is "Just Jake" playing guitar and singing.
