#315 At the museum: Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum

The Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum, located in Wausau, Wisconsin offers artworks from every corner of the world. The grounds cover four acres highlighted by the Margaret Fisher Sculpture Garden, a formal English garden.  

Best known is the internationally acclaimed Birds in Art, an annual juried exhibition that showcases a variety of artistic styles: created by artists the world over and documented in a 
full-color catalogue.  Since 1976, the museum has organized Birds in Art annually, seeking to present the very best contemporary artistic interpretations of birds.  

Approximately 100 works are selected by a jury, and   
this year, one of my favorite sculptures was chosen to be in the show:  Shade of Paradise is a study of the elegant peafowl. Although I was in the field and could not attend, I am always honored to be juried into the prestigious event.
