The Art Ball 2021 marks the museum's 60th anniversary. It's an occasion to honor the past and celebrate the museum's journey from the community gallery established by Melitta Hedwig Suder-Pick in 1961 to the innovative cultural focus that is the Museum of Wisconsin Art today.
This year, MOWA proudly honors a group of strong and visionary women who, like our founder, have boldly shaped and transformed the cultural landscape of Wisconsin. If the last year has taught us anything, it is that time is a gift, and it's a gift worth sharing, which is what we plan to do at this momentous October gathering.
