80 Years of Work by 40 Artists

Featuring work from the permanent collection, On the Nature of Wisconsin is a celebration of Wisconsin artists and their relationship with the natural world. A state known for its fresh water, forests, and parks, this exhibition examines the connections artists have made and observed with these surroundings. Works included depict sweeping landscapes, quiet farm life, reimagined plants and animals, and objects exemplifying natural forms.  

On the Nature of  Wisconsin  was an incredibly well-received exhibition that was cut short by the temporary closing due to COVID-19. A virtual version of the exhibit was launched shortly after the closing. By extending the physical exhibition for two weeks, The Warehouse is offering guests another opportunity to see the show in person.
