Exhibition space at the Enterprise Center


Green County Development Corporation(GCDC) opened the Enterprise Center in the north section of Blackhawk Technical College in Monroe. This is a place for beginning and established businesses to come for free assistance with their business needs. We are proud to partner with them by  highlighting local artists in their public spaces. 
We have a very flexible rotation of art pieces with artists’ names and prices noted for pieces to be purchased. BTC Dean, Matt Urban, installed a good art hanging system on the walls. Currently only work that can be hung on the walls can be used. Framed prints of your work are also welcome.  Respond to this continuing Call for Art by contacting either Patrick McGowan or Joan Stackpole with your interest.
