Museum of Wisconsin Art at Saint John’s On The Lake

Since 1961, the Museum of Wisconsin Art in West Bend has established itself as the state’s preeminent institution for collecting, documenting, and exhibiting the visual art of Wisconsin. Through a ground-breaking collaboration with Saint John’s On The Lake in 2011, and drawing from the MWA’s outstanding permanent collection, as well as directly from artists, the MWA offers historic and contemporary art exhibitions that not only stand on their own merits, but offer a tantalizing glimpse into the larger holdings and offerings in West Bend.

Featured Exhibit


Rosalie Waranius Vass Art
January 16 – April 8, 2020

Born and raised in Dundee, Wisconsin, Rosalie Waranius Vass has exhibited her work extensively nationally and internationally for six decades. Over those years she has developed a unique watercolor technique whereupon she layers the translucent paint, creating an opaque surface that shimmers and glows. While she creates her paintings from her imagination, “making a painting is like solving a mystery. I never know what will evolve when I put brush to paper,” they are inspired by memories of the lush, hilly Kettle Moraine area where she grew up and her extensive travels further afield.
