107th Green Bay Art Colony Exhibition
Opens Saturday, January 22
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.

76th Art Annual
Now open!
The 76th Art Annual exhibit is an all-media, juried exhibition of current artworks produced by artists living in the counties of Northeastern Wisconsin and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.  A total of 40 artworks by 39 artists were chosen by juror George Williams (Professor of Visual Arts, Beloit College). 

This juried art exhibition began in 1942 during the height of World War II. For three-quarters of a century, many of this region’s most celebrated and talented artists have exhibited their work as part of this Green Bay tradition. This exhibition exhibits the importance and power of visual languages that can be interpreted and reinterpreted. For everything that needs to be said there is a language, and the languages of these artists are eclectic and relevant for the times in which we live. The artists have spoken from their own unique voices utilizing various mediums, subject matter and cultures.
Stay safe and stay tuned for updates!
