Overture’s Local Legends lead by example in their support of the arts and community engagement. Local Legends give $100,000 to support operations and programs at Overture Center for the Arts and every spring this giving serves as a challenge to the Madison community to match their generosity. Overture’s annual Match Campaign makes the arts available to all in Madison and beyond.

2021/22 LOCAL LEGEND
Our 2021/22 Local Legend is Deirdre Garton.
“The reason I continue to go to exhibitions and arts performances at Overture Center is because I want to experience the feelings of wonder and awe, over and over again,” said Deirdre Garton. “I’ve been very blessed in my life, and my family history is one of sharing, so I decided to give this gift to Overture to help make it possible for everybody to have arts experiences like I’ve had.”
