MOWA is one of the top museums of regional art in the United States, with over 5,000 works of contemporary and historic art by more than 350 artists. Through rotating exhibitions and educational programs, MOWA provides an innovative forum for the culturally engaged. MOWA owns two principal collections: the Carl von Marr collection and the Early Wisconsin Regional Art collection. The former was the collection upon which the museum was founded in 1961, and features the work of Milwaukee-born, German-educated artist Carl von Marr; the Early Wisconsin collection was unveiled in 1998 upon Wisconsin’s sesquicentennial. Both of these collections are permanently displayed and changes to the galleries are made annually.
