The Museum of Wisconsin Art (MOWA) has curated a selection of Wisconsin art for display at the Wisconsin Governor's Executive Residence. Artwork is on view throughout the first floor of the Residence and is used to enhance adult and youth educational tours.

“It’s an honor to collaborate with Governor and First Lady Evers,” said Executive Director | CEO Laurie Winters. “MOWA is a museum dedicated to the arts and culture of the state of Wisconsin. It presents exhibitions of historical and contemporary Wisconsin art at its 32,000-sq-ft location in West Bend, at Saint Kate—The Arts Hotel in downtown Milwaukee, and now the Governor’s Residence in Madison.”

“MOWA possesses an extensive collection of significant Wisconsin art, and we are so pleased to partner with the museum to highlight Wisconsin art and artists in the Residence,” said First Lady Evers. “We have selected art pieces that tell stories about our state’s history and culture over the past 100 years. Some—like the sketches for the mural in our hometown post office in Plymouth—even have personal resonance for Tony and me. Wisconsin has a rich art culture and so many talented artists, and our hope is to feature a rotating collection of art at the Residence each year for the public to enjoy.”

MOWA curated nearly twenty works, loaned to the Executive Residence, including pieces by Reginald Baylor, Eóin Breadon, Tom Jones, David Lenz, Dona Look, Truman Lowe, Jeremy Popelka, Adolph Rosenblatt, Gerit Sinclair, Lucia Stern, Charles Thwaites, Stephanie Trenchard, Tom Uttech, and Lee Weiss. Other pieces of Wisconsin art from the permanent Residence collection is also on display.

“It’s been a pleasure working with First Lady Evers and her wonderful staff,” noted Winters. “I’m impressed with the First Lady’s aesthetic preferences and her interest in contemporary art.”
