West Bend, WI – In just six decades the Museum of Wisconsin Art, 205 Veterans Avenue, in West Bend has evolved from a small hometown gallery to one of the leading regional museums in the country.
When Melitta Hedwig Suder-Pick founded the museum with her two daughters in 1961 no one could have predicted the MOWA of today and its profound impact in inspiring, engaging, and fostering the arts and culture of Wisconsin.
