WVAG Art at the Airport

Ever notice the artwork at airports? There’s the light tunnel at the Detroit airport, the Chihuly sculptures at the Palm Springs airport, AND there are paintings at the Central Wisconsin Airport in Mosinee. Featuring the work of regional artists from the Wisconsin Visual Artists Guild, the gallery at the airport is a great way to relax and take in some art before heading to your next destination. Even if you’re not flying, the airport has 45 minutes of FREE parking which is plenty of time to take in the exhibit. All artwork is available for purchase, too. Just contact the artist listed next to the painting.

Thank you to CWA airport staff for supporting the Central Wisconsin arts community and for the exhibit space. To the artist's participating and helping to install the show, thank you for sharing your art and brightening a traveler's day. 

Artist Nancy Laliberte, Wausau

 Artist Dawn Olson, Wisconsin Rapids

CWA staff member Jim Olson and artist Andrea Fenner, Irma WI

 Artist Jackie Lescher, Ringle WI

All work is available for purchase. With every art sale, the WVAG donates 25% of the purchase price to the Marshfield Clinic Cancer Care Fund. Of special note, during the fall show, there is a special exhibition of artwork where 100% of the purchase amount is donated to the Cancer Care Fund. Your support of the arts and artists makes a difference.
