On the Road in 2024

Posted on December 13, 2023
The new year brings with it two opportunities to travel with the Woodson Art Museum. Both trips are all-inclusive, featuring Woodson Art Museum travel staples of memorable meals with one another with a variety of exceptional cuisines and surprises that will broaden your artistic horizons.

Experiences That Shape Us

Formative experiences like going to daycare shape who we are and who we become as adults. Docents create memorable experiences at the Woodson Art Museum, ones that leave a lasting impact on the youth in Wausau.

A little Museum “house” work

Last week, before Thanksgiving feasts weighed us all down, I thought it would be a good time to take the crew down to the Curling Club and teach them the basics.

You Can Call Me “Coach”

Posted on November 22, 2023
If you call the Museum at 4pm Monday through Friday and I am not in the office, there’s a reason. I am volunteering my time and talents as an assistant coach for the D.C. Everest Varsity Dance Team.  

A Picture-Perfect Finish

What signs signal that it's the time to draw a story to a close? When is a composition finished? Explore how these 'endings' feature in the upcoming exhibition From Concept to Canvas: The Artistic Process, opening December 9.

Who is Your “Why”?

SPARK!, a free monthly offering to members of the community with memory loss and their care partners, has helped to "spark" our why here at the Museum. After attending a conference in Oshkosh last week, I was reminded of why focusing on the "why" is so impactful, especially when sharing it with a room full of unfamiliar faces.

We See You, Out There, Attending

Lately, the Woodson Art Museum galleries have been hopping with visitors from school groups looking to enrich their education with art opportunities to friends making their annual pilgrimage to Wausau to see this year’s edition of Birds in Art and maybe peek at our beautiful fall coloring.

Worth the Trip

Posted on October 25, 2023
After being in two very different, yet equally immersive spaces, I feel re-motivated to help bring these types of experiences to as many people as possible in central Wisconsin and beyond. Western Massachusetts will probably be a place I return to again and again to find new motivation and inspiration when the need arises. Traveling through the quaint and historic towns on the way to two great museums is always worth the trip.

If You Give a Dad a Story

As a voracious reader and lifelong learner myself, it’s personally rewarding for me to help children get interested in reading at a young age.

“Leaf” It to the Painter

Ariana’s enthusiasm for art making is contagious and I hope you can find time in your schedule to visit the Museum and take advantage of our exciting fall programming to enrich your creative senses.
