Ballweg Gallery

Steven F Wirtz, Bull, paper mache and wire

The Diane Endres Ballweg Gallery inside the Goodman Community Center displays work by emerging and contemporary artists with a tie to Madison. The gallery seeks to invigorate the community’s artistic spirit by providing a high visibility space for artists to present their work to the public, making it easy for our community to enjoy and purchase original local art. The gallery hall is the way to to our largest and most-used community rooms, so hundreds to thousands of people walk by the artwork every month of the year.

The Ballweg Gallery displays work by contemporary artists with a tie to Madison, often to Madison's east side. Artwork is selected for display by a small team including our Volunteer Gallery Curator and some staff.

We're currently looking for artists for 2017.

Citizens of Madison

A Photojournalism Project By Goodman Middle School Students

Inspired by the popular “Humans of New York” portrait and interview project, middle school students at Goodman recently stopped people along the Capital City Path to ask them questions and take their portrait. Each framed portrait includes a short narrative from their conversation, giving everyone a chance to meet a few of the citizens of Madison.
