On view at MOWA | Lon Michels, Disrupting Patterns ends January 21, 2024

West Bend, WI – A popular exhibit at the Museum of Wisconsin Art (MOWA), 205 Veterans Avenue, West Bend, WI, is wrapping up as Lon Michels, Disrupting Patterns ends January 21, 2024.  MOWA

Lon Michels: Disrupting Patterns is a mid-career retrospective of the Lodi-based painter. Early works date from Michels’s 20-something years in New York after he fled a repressive childhood in rural Wisconsin for the freedom—creative and otherwise—promised by the Big Apple.

His magnetic personality and distinctive style caught the attention of the art establishment: Michels spent his days as an assistant to sculptor Louise Nevelson and his nights hobnobbing at Andy Warhol’s Factory. From Nevelson, Michels learned the significance of scale and the power of constructed environments. Warhol’s conception of celebrity affirmed his penchant for brilliant color and his inclination to highlight the individual.
