Mission Statement
The mission of the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum is to enhance lives through art. Therefore, the Museum will continually strive for excellence in providing audiences with quality art experiences through permanent collections, changing exhibitions, and education programs.

About the museum:
The Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum, located in a beautiful residential area on the east side of Wausau, Wisconsin, offers artworks from every corner of the world to north central Wisconsin residents and visitors through diverse changing exhibitions. Regular programs such as Art Babies, Toddler Tuesday, Art Time for Tots, Little Masters, Young Artists, teen events, Studio Art and Art History 101 for adults, SPARK! for individuals with memory loss and their care partners, and Art Beyond Sight for those with vision impairments are supplemented with published Activity Guides, storytelling, lectures, videos, demonstrations, and bus trips. Not to be missed are frequent, varied artist residencies and summertime children’s art camps and Family Fest.

The Museum is housed in an updated 1931 English Tudor period Cotswold-style residence to which a new main entrance and expansive two-story gallery spaces and recent west addition have been added. The grounds cover four acres highlighted by the Margaret Woodson Fisher Sculpture Garden, attractive brick walkways, a shaded arbor and seating area, and on-site parking. All public spaces are accessible to visitors with disabilities.

Birds in Art opens to the public on the first Saturday following Labor Day every year and is enlivened by an array of education programming and special events for all ages.

Tours
Nearly one third of the Museum’s annual visitors – approximately 15,000 school children and adults – benefit from tours given by the Museum’s dedicated docents.
