Bayview, 10/3/2023
The Bayview community has existed for over 50 years, situated in the triangle of South Park Street, Regent Street, and West Washington Ave., and the great history of the area has served as the inspiration for a three-story mural now displayed on an apartment building at the corner of Regent and West Wash. 
The project was created with support from the City of Madison Neighborhood Grant, Dane Arts, and Endres Manufacturing Company Foundation. A ceremony to dedicate the mural will take place at 720 W. Washington Ave. on Thursday, Oct. 5 at 5 p.m. The mural, titled “Hope Finds a Home,” came from residents of Bayview considering what home meant for them and imagining their contribution to the community art piece as a reflection of their experience living there. Arts and cultural programming stand out as core focuses in Bayview’s mission.
