Under the Surface
Now open!
Water has the power to heal and restore. This power is on display in an exhibit of images created in a therapeutic program for young people struggling with mental health issues. The underwater images were taken by clients in a residential treatment program called Northwest Passage, which is based in Webster, Wisconsin. 

In addition to photographs, students wrote stories and poetry describing their experiences or feelings about the images. The result is a powerful exhibit on the healing potential of the natural world. This exhibit is on loan from the Wisconsin Sea Grant Institute.
NWTC Artisan Center: Milestones
Now open!
Milestones is a juried exhibition inspired by the Neville Public Museum's Collections featuring artwork of NWTC Artisan and Business Center Artists. In preparation for the exhibit, artists were asked to select an item from the Museum's digital collections online or the new Generations Gallery from which to draw their inspiration.
Reviving Traditional Arts of the Oneida
Now open!
This exhibit is a partnership between the Oneida Nation Arts Program, the Oneida Nation Museum, and the Neville Public Museum. The exhibit highlights the cultural legacy of basketry, pottery, and silverwork among the Oneida people. It showcases different aspects of these art forms among broader Haudenosaunee artists. The exhibit encourages the renewed interest in Native arts and culture in Northeast Wisconsin.
To put it in the Oneida language, Tetwátlatstá (day-dwa-tlats-staa), "We are going over it again." Get your tickets here today!
Stay safe and stay tuned for updates!
