Learn about Wisconsin art from prehistoric times to 1950 through a new college-level course that explores and analyzes regional art as it relates to the social and cultural development of
the state.

The West Bend Art Museum is offering “Early Wisconsin Art and Culture from Prehistoric Times Forward to 1950,” a three-credit graduate level course June 23–27 at the museum. The course covers prehistoric glyph art through mid-twentieth accomplishments of such renowned Wisconsin artists as Carl von Marr, architect Frank Lloyd Wright, and photographer Edward Steichen.

Tom Lidtke, the museum’s executive director, will teach the course. He is the author of numerous articles and publications on the subject of regional art. Continuing education credits will be granted through the University of St. Thomas. Credits are also applicable to Wisconsin teachers’ recertification and the course meets Wisconsin Educators Standards Focus: 1, 4, 6, 7, and 9.

Registration forms are available at the West Bend Art Museum, 300 S. Sixth St., West Bend, or through the mail by calling the museum at (262) 334-9638 or online at www.wbartmuseum.com/education. The course syllabus is also available upon request.
