For over a year now, the Woodson Art Museum has been teasing the opening of a rooftop sculpture garden atop the Museum’s 2011 addition.
This challenge is right up my alley. A seek and find of small metal sculptures in different Wausau city parks, not too easy to find, but not impossible. I'd be all over that.
Fresh from the successful opening weekend of the 42nd Birds in Art exhibition, I’m pondering squirrels. I tend to be fairly deliberate in my work. I like lists. Spreadsheets are my friends. I enjoy planning my calendar and filling it with color-coded notations. I schedule “impromptu” messages to my daughter, a first-year college student. So, I can relate to the industrious squirrel scurrying about gathering and storing for the . . .
A key component of the Woodson Art Museum’s flagship Birds in Art exhibition is the Museum’s Master Artist recognition for achievement within the avian-art genre. This tradition began with Wisconsin’s Owen Gromme in 1976 and over the years has highlighted the work of an international cast of thirty-six artists.
Last week, I had the pleasure of leading a group of twenty-four Woodson Art Museum members on a motor-coach tour to the Milwaukee area. I planned the tour to coincide with the Milwaukee Art Museum’s Van Gogh to Pollock exhibition and added stops to appeal to members' varied interests.
