Cultivating CommunityOne Work of Art at a Time

Each year, the State Gallery lights up with more than 200 artworks submitted by MOWA members of all ages and levels of experience. Collectively, the works reveal what is engaging the minds, hearts, and brushstrokes of MOWA members.

MOWA’s 60th anniversary year would not be complete without celebrating the members who inspire and support us. ­This year’s Members’ Show coincides with Claiming Space, which also features exclusively contemporary artists. Together, the two exhibitions showcase what makes MOWA possible: the strength of Wisconsin art today and the dedication and unwavering commitment of art lovers like you.

As people around the world and around the state have filtered in and out of isolation during the last two years, this exhibition brings together people and their stories: to gather, celebrate, and take stock in a new way. We can reflect on where we have been and where we at MOWA want to go.

A valid membership through October 31, 2021 is required to participate.
