Butterflies on Main

The Village of Waunakee’s annual Art on Main program rolls out once again with Butterflies on Main. The sixth iteration of Waunakee’s original public art project aims to build on the past success of projects like Barrels on Parade (2018) and Mutts on Main (2019) in developing the Village’s creative identity. 

Presented in collaboration with Endres Mfg. Company and the Waunakee Area Chamber of Commerce, Butterflies on Main invites the community to create and submit artistic proposals. Chosen artists will be assigned a steel butterfly cutout to use as their canvas. Artists will also be provided with a $200 stipend, courtesy of the Waunakee Area Chamber of Commerce and Endres Mfg. Company Foundation. The finished butterflies will be on display mounted to light posts along Main Street from the first week of July until the weekend of Wauktoberfest. After the butterflies are removed from view, they will be auctioned off to the community at Wauktoberfest on Sunday, September 13, 2020. Proceeds will support future community projects through Create Waunakee and the Endres Mfg. Company Foundation.

Those interested in applying must currently live or work in the school district limits of the Village of Waunakee or be a graduate of Waunakee Community High School.
