Wisconsin Valley Art Association logo

Welcome to WVAA! The WVAA was formed in 1951 with the purpose of promoting the arts by bringing lectures, exhibits and workshops to the area. We also raise money to further Art Education through scholarships and grants to area schools, organizations and for individuals to attend art workshops. The WVAA is a non-profit organization open to all interested professional and non-professional artists, crafts people, students and patrons of the arts, as well as art enthusiasts.
