Random Acts of Celebration

Although Earth Day is April 22 and Slow Art Day was April 10, carrying the spirit of these days throughout many more may be among the best ways to observe them. Earth Day 2021 includes activities spanning three days, and taking time to linger in a Woodson Art Museum gallery and appreciate art slowly is a good idea year round.

What Our Visitors Say

Everything is PERFECT! The building is equally as beautiful as the art inside. The staff is amazing and answered every question we had. We are blown away by this museum!

Digital Guestbook, 2021

We have been making the three-hour trip from Minnesota for years – not every year while we raised kids, but now we're renewing that tradition. Today, just mom and grown daughter – her first trip. I am here for Birds in Art, which was our introduction and our reason for returning year after year. It is stunning, inspiring, humbling, and so much fun to see and read each time. Thanks!
