First Impressions

Posted on April 10, 2024
April 15, 1874. In the recently vacated gallery space of the French photographer Nadar at 35 Boulevard des Capucines 30 artists hung 165 artworks on the gallery’s walls. This new exhibition, organized by the Société Anonyme Coopérative des Artists Peintres, Sculpteurs, Graveurs — or Cooperative and Anonymous Association of Painters, Sculptors, and Engravers, was the first Impressionist exhibition. The effects of April 15, 1874 — now nearing its 150th anniversary — can be felt here in Wausau, April 10, 2024.

This week, we brought the magic of “March Madness” to the Museum as the staff picked a favorite artwork from the Museum’s collection to go head-to-head in an outrageously heated vote for superiority.

Making My Way Around Town

Posted on February 27, 2024
The start of new exhibitions is an exciting, yet busy time for everyone at the Museum. For me, that means new promotional materials need to be ordered, sorted, and distributed throughout the community.
