Duck in before “Deco” Ducks Out

By: Kathy Kelsey Foley, director on June 1st, 2022

For twelve weeks, Art Deco Glass from the Huchthausen Collection has filled the Woodson Art Museum’s main level galleries. More than 140 brilliantly colored and boldly shaped examples of utilitarian and decorative objects made in European studios during the first decades of the twentieth century are dazzling visitors.

Five days remain to check out this remarkable collection assembled by contemporary glass artist David Huchthausen.

David grew up in central Wisconsin and was instrumental in the Woodson Art Museum’s work with contemporary glass in the late 1970s and early 1980s. David’s own practice as a studio glass artist altered the history of contemporary glass. Examples of his work can be seen in Molten: 30 Years of American Glass, which remains on view through Sunday, August 14.

Sunday, June 5, however, is the final day to view Art Deco Glass.

Consider a visit on June 2, the first Thursday of the month, when the Woodson Art Museum remains open until 7:30 pm.

In addition to checking out the Art Deco Glass and Molten galleries, you can meet and listen to Wausau East High School ex-IB-ition students and their art instructor Joel Pataconi talk about this year’s creative International Baccalaureate-worthy work at 5:30 pm. It’s also the final day to view the 2022 ex-IB-ition.
