Downtown Art Benefits Entire City, Not Just Building Itself.

Madison’s newest art installation has already garnered headlines, but the economic ripple effect of privately commissioned art is the real story.

Artist Jonathan Brown of Houston-based Modern Mosaics has been hard at work for the past week overseeing the final stages of installation of his massive 123-foot by 15-foot lighted waterfall mural at the 316 W. Washington Ave. building owned by Hovde Properties (a live video feed of the final stages of installation can be viewed here). But Brown isn’t the only one who’s helped bring this project to life.
