“featuring artwork from around the world!”

The Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum, located in a beautiful residential area on the east side of Wausau, Wisconsin, offers artworks from every corner of the world to north central Wisconsin residents and visitors through diverse changing exhibitions. Best known is the internationally acclaimed Birds in Art, an annual juried exhibition that showcases a variety of artistic styles – from impressionism to satirical caricature – created by artists the world over and documented in a full color-catalogue. The Museum is housed in an updated 1931 English Tudor period Cotswold-style residence to which a new main entrance and expansive two-story gallery spaces have been added. The grounds cover four acres highlighted by the Margaret Woodson Fisher Sculpture Garden, a formal English garden, attractive brick walkways, a shaded arbor and seating area, and on-site parking. All public spaces are accessible to visitors with disabilities.
