The new Museum of Wisconsin Art (MOWA) in West Bend, Wisconsin is one of the top regional art museums in the country. It is the primary venue nationally for the exhibition of historic and contemporary Wisconsin art, including holdings of more than 300 artists, over 4,000 works of art, and a sizeable archive/ library. Each year, MOWA presents 12-14 exhibitions, numerous weekly educational and public programs targeted to all ages and interest levels, and a series of special events. In April 2013, MOWA celebrated a major milestone with the opening of a new building on the Milwaukee River that doubled the gallery square footage and expanded its capacity to offer public programs and educational activities.
