The long-awaited arrival of spring in north central Wisconsin signals exciting changes in our activities, environment, and my energy level. Here’s a suggested way to embrace the spirit of spring: visit the Woodson Art Museum during photographer Ian Plant’s residency next weekend, May 12 & 13.
The Woodson Art Museum’s current exhibition, Rarely Seen: Photographs of the Extraordinary offers large photographs of unusual and exotic scenes from around the world. I enjoy walking through the galleries, seeing visitors leaning in to study the details within the photographs or intently reading labels to learn more about the location or subject. I wonder how many of our visitors are adventurers, seeking out rare and exotic locations during their travels. Are they studying the photographs hoping to find inspiration for their next trip?
