Art is for Everyone

It’s easy for some people to perceive art communities as insular and privileged. In some fine art circles, an artist’s work has enormous value, while a designer’s work receives little recognition. It’s energizing to see the opposite is true at the Woodson Art Museum, where the lines between artist, designer, and maker always seem to be blurred.

What Our Visitors Say

What a beautiful museum and community space. The exhibitions here are displayed with care in a bright and open area with a good flow allowing for visitors to spend time looking and understanding each piece. There are sculptures outside along with a garden walk surrounding the museum, and indoors multiple levels of exhibitions and a playful art space for children. Plan more time than you think you’ll need! This is a Wausau gem.
