VIDEO | Wisconsin Visual Art Achievement Awards presented at the Museum of Wisconsin Art

West Bend, WI – The Wisconsin Visual Art Achievement Awards were handed out at the Museum of Wisconsin Art in West Bend. 

According to MOWA:

The Wisconsin Visual Art Achievement Awards honor individual artists and organizations that are “significantly enriching the visual arts of the state.”

Organizations involved in the WVAAA have restructured the focus of the awards in order to “more meaningfully highlight working artists in the state. While the awards originally focused on an individual artist’s contributions over an entire career, the award categories have been broadened to recognize achievement at various stages of an artist’s career and in related professional areas that are often overlooked, such as youth education, community arts advocacy, exhibitions, and arts writing.”
