Once upon a time in the not so faraway land of West Bend there was a magical place called the Museum of Wisconsin Art. And, every year, this place held a grand event open to all its members. No need to try on magical footwear, kiss frogs, or slay dragons—just hop on your carriage, let down your hair, and experience the work of 250 MOWA members.
