Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum

Each September the Leigh Yawkey Woodson art Museum in Wausau Wisconsin, exhibits the international Birds in Art show.  This past week we made the 2 hour drive to Wausau; this being our 5th time to the annual exhibit.  The Museum and show are always inspirational.
The grounds around the Museum display beautiful sculptures and gardens.  This Bronze by Kent Ullberg, titled "Whooping Crane" stands about 10' and greets us as we walk from the parking area.
The show opened September 6th and will be on display until November 16th, 2014.

Their website describes the show as:

"Birds inspire awe in endless ways, through their mesmerizing flight, astounding beauty, and delightful eccentricities. They serve as harbingers of seasonal and environmental changes, dazzle with their colors, and soothe with their songs. When talented artists from throughout the world strive to be among those chosen for the internationally renowned Birds in Art exhibition, the resulting depictions are breathtaking. The 39th annual Birds in Art exhibition celebrates avian marvels through fresh interpretations in original paintings, sculptures, and graphics created within the last three years. A fully illustrated catalogue accompanies Birds in Art and will be available in September".

Wausau is also the home of Rib Mountain state park. We took advantage of the hiking trails for 2 beautiful days and shot a boat load of photos.  It is so peaceful in the woods.

It was an awesome two days for art and nature.
