Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum
One simple idea – birds – filtered through the minds and hands of more than 110 artists creates an annual bird-themed exhibition that is always absorbing, thought provoking, and imaginative. The Birds in Art exhibition opens the weekend after Labor Day and remains open for 9-10 weeks. This single event attracts thousands of visitors to this beautiful art museum located in the eastern edge of the Andrew Warren Historic District in Wausau. The museum’s permanent collection contains many beautiful paintings, carvings and sculptures of birds that can be seen year-round, so a visit anytime will charm birders.
