ART ON 
MAIN

Are you an artist or supporter of the arts? Want to get involved in Art on Main? Contact us

Art on Main is a public art program of the Olde Main Street District. Striving to ignite passion and conversation by bringing art out of the galleries and onto the street as a community revitalization enhancement, economic development driver and quality of life improvement. 


Volunteers from the OMSI Public Art Committee are working hard to introduce new and exciting artistic styles to the district like Park in the Art, an artistic bicycle rack program and currently, Murals on Main. Murals on Main is a high-impact, high-visibility initiative kicked off in 2014 with Wes Martin's Native American Motif inspired pattern. In 2015, two new murals took shape over the summer and fall. 2016 brought us the picturesque Green Bay Mural and the Guardian of Life mural.

Murals

Wes Martin's Motif Mural

In 2014, Green Bay native, Wes Martin kicked off Murals on Main with a beautiful Native American inspired pattern on the NWTC Artisan & Business Center (1417 Cedar Street). 

The project is focused on "locations around communities adjacent to rivers and lakes, as waterways were vitally important to daily Native American life." Four communities in WI - Green Bay, Kenosha, Madison and LaCrosse - Santa Cruz, CA and New Orleans, LA will be home to Wes' work. 

Wes noted his current work, "is focused on using the visual language of patterns and designs, found traditionally on blankets and pottery, and re-interpreting this language into large-scale murals and billboards. 

Frida Kahlo

Frida Kahlo, a mural portraying the culture and landscape of Mexico and a distinguished artist and cultural leader, was completed summer of 2015 at Los Banditos (1258 Main Street). Green Bay Area Public High School students designed and installed the mural over the course of the summer. The students are part of "A2O" (Artist Afternoons Outside) a Satellite Summer School course. 



Matt Bero completed Morty the Moose on Main Street, Oct. 12, 2015. Stop by 1274 Cedar Street (near the intersection of Main and St. George St.) to see the beautiful Moose gracing our urban center. Au Naturale, Netsonic, Kos Apartments and many others came together to make this mural happen - we thank each and everyone of them! Check out Matt's website for a time lapse (scroll all the way down) and details on the development of the mural. 

Matt's statement about Morty: 

"It's very often today that we are engulfed by our technology. It's extremely beneficial in many ways to get back to nature once and a while and experience things you might have easily overlooked had you been checking facebook. The moose and its surroundings serve as a happy and colorful reminder to look up once in a while and go experience some nature. It could be the simple rejuvenation you've been looking for."

Park in the Art 
Park in the Art is an artistic bicycle rack program coordinated by the Olde Main Street District that mixes art and functionality to bring you bicycle racks with personality. See the program page for full details and locations here.

 

Green Bay Mural

Graffiti artist Beau Thomas is a Green Bay native, and is determined to sharing his creativity with his community, as is proof in the popular photo spot, the Green Bay Mural. The Green Bay Mural was completed in the summer of 2016, facing Main Street at 620 Main St., behind Kuehn Printing. Local residents and downtown employees have the privilege of driving, walking and biking past the larger-than-life art piece highlighting the Arts District as well as some of Green Bay's famous landmarks like the Brown County Courthouse, the Bellin Building, the Watermark and the Leo Frigo bridge.
