This year’s featured art for the Madison Night Market was created by local artist Xizhou Xie, a regular Madison Night Market vendor for the past few years. Her booth is located near the Overture Center at each market and her artwork can be viewed in person at the Xizhou Xie Art Gallery on Madison’s West Side.
