A B O U T M O WA The Museum of Wisconsin Art (MOWA) explores the art and culture of Wisconsin. Founded in 1961, MOWA is a top museum of regional art in the U.S., with over 5,000 works of contemporary and historic art by more than 350 artists. The museum houses five permanent collection galleries and four temporary exhibition spaces, as well as classrooms, visible art storage, gift shop and atrium for public events. Through exhibitions and educational programs, MOWA fosters an innovative forum and provides access to the visual arts of Wisconsin for all. Opened in 2013, the 32,000 square foot museum building along the east bank of the Milwaukee River is on a triangular plot of land that inspired the facility's modern wedge shape. The museum footprint includes a spectacularly landscaped set of gardens with an open field for outdoor activities and festivals, 800 quaking aspen trees, 1,200 hydrangeas, sculp - tures, courtyard for intimate gatherings and interconnected walkways. The museum is located at 205 Veterans Ave., West Bend, WI 53095. For information, phone (262) 334-9638 or visit MOWA and The Marcus Corporation recently formalized a collaboration for a new museum location within Saint Kate, Wisconsin's first-of-its-kind arts hotel set to open this spring in Milwau - kee. The new affiliation—officially called MOWA | DTN, a reference to the downtown Milwaukee location—will consist of a 1,700-square-foot gallery located on the first floor of Saint Kate, and will open in June 2019. "A collaboration of this stature between a museum and hotel is truly groundbreaking. This is unique in the museum industry," said MOWA Executive Director and CEO Laurie Winters.
