The Gallery at the Madison was a concept conceived through a desire to beautify the lobby of the Center, provide a chance for the community, Madison families, and students to experience substantial works of visual arts. Through the process of conceptualization, it was recognized that throughout Arizona there is an abundance of artists without the outlet to show their extraordinary works.
This spurred the desire to create a gallery that could not only benefit local artists with a beautiful space to show their work but by creating opportunities for the students of Madison School District to experience and learn from skilled artists that desire to give back to the community. Opportunities for students to engage and experience the arts will only increase through the donations received from the sale of each work of art sold at The Gallery to the Madison Education Foundation.
