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.
