November 2020
Behold: the Future!
We are pleased to announce the launch of our snazzy new website

In our ongoing efforts to provide authentic digital content, the new design provides a more integrated, relevant, and memorable way to discover what the Neville Public Museum offers our community.

The new website includes high impact graphics and increased accessibility for navigation throughout the site. Work on the creation and implementation of the new site was provided by Konect (formerly DMI Studios) based in Green Bay. Questions? Feedback? We would love to hear from you!
75th Art Annual
Now open!
The 75th 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 54 artworks by 50 artists were chosen by juror Annemarie Sawkins (Independent Curator and Art Consultant). 

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. Several of the selected works in the 75th Art Annual speak to the societal challenges of the past year, from a global pandemic to social injustice. Despite the ongoing uncertainties of life, we hope this body of work will be emotionally inspiring and mentally healing to all who view it.

Holiday Memories of Downtown Green Bay Returns!
Saturday, November 21
The most wonderful time of the year is here again, and with it all of your seasonal favorites: Snow Babies, Enchanted Forest, and plenty of H.C. Prange's department store classics. Reminisce about happy golden days of yore while looking ahead to all the magic that is to come with a new generation of celebrants!
Bruce the Spruce
Debuts Saturday, November 28
10:00 a.m.-noon
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!
