After six years of research, writing, and publishing, the Cedarburg Art Museum is proud to announce the release of “A Creative Place: The History of Wisconsin Art”. Co-authors Tom Lidtke and Annemarie Sawkins elegantly tell the story of Wisconsin’s rich and diverse artistic development. To share and expand upon the story, the Museum also curated an educational and informative exhibition by the same name. Like the book, the exhibition chronologically surveys Wisconsin’s artistic history over seven chapters.
At the core of the exhibition are 44 informative panels that weave together cultural trends, socio/political events, stylistic trends, and notable artists with examples of correlating artwork. In its entirety, the 44 didactic panels stand alone as a wonderful overview covering 13,000 years of Wisconsin art. It is easily editable for your space and application without losing impact.
We encourage you to supplement actual pieces from your collection and/or from other collections in your area that correlate with the chapters. This affords a unique opportunity to infuse your important objects into the context of The History of Wisconsin Art!
