MOWA’s year-round exhibitions take deep dives into the historical and contemporary Wisconsin art scene, but there is no better demonstration of the depth and diversity of Wisconsin art than the annual Members’ Show, which showcases works by 250 MOWA members hanging salon style in the State Gallery. With work by professional artists and weekend warriors installed on equal footing, this exhibition offers an invaluable look into the creative vision of contemporary Wisconsin art.
