Bruce the Spruce
Visit before he heads back to the North Pole!
We are proud to be the home of the original Bruce the Spruce from the Green Bay Prange's department store! For those unfamiliar, Bruce is a large Christmas tree who lives at the North Pole with Santa Claus...but it wasn't always so. Legend has it that when Bruce was a young sapling, Santa landed his sleigh in the North Pole Forest on Christmas Eve to take a short nap before his long night of work, and would have slept right through Christmas if the talking tree hadn't woken him up! From then on, Bruce could be found at Prange's near the holidays every year spreading Christmas cheer to shoppers and their children. Make sure to check out the calendar to find out when Bruce will be awake entertaining visitors!

Reviving Traditional Arts of the Oneida
Opens Saturday, January 9
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!

106th Green Bay Art Colony Exhibition
Opens Saturday, January 23
In September 1915, the Green Bay Art Club held its first public art exhibit in the children’s room of the Kellogg Public Library (125 S. Jefferson St.). This exhibit laid the foundation for a permanent museum in the library in 1917, which became the Neville Public Museum. Ever since then, Colony artists have held an annual art exhibit at the Neville Public Museum.
For more than a century, hundreds of women artists have been part of the Green Bay Art Colony. These women continue to inspire each other, educate the public, encourage new artists and give scholarships to art students. Styles and club rules may have changed, but the dream to keep art and culture part of the community remains the same.
This past year has been particularly challenging for everyone due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, the theme for this year’s exhibition is Art Gone Viral. A total of 36 artworks from 25 artists were juried in by Elizabeth Meissner-Gigstead, Executive Director at the Miller Art Museum in Sturgeon Bay. These works are reflective of the personal expressions of overcoming difficulty, while remining optimistic for a post-pandemic world.
