URGENT! The tour has grown!
I thought I would send out one last ditch effort for a docent tomorrow! We have a group of 30 coming in tomorrow from 10A – 11A requesting a private tour with a focus on the Eric Carle exhibition. While we have a docent who has agreed to do the tour, we’re looking for a second due to the size of the group. Here is a bit more information:

Information on Woodson Art Museum below (FYI: Their Executive Director will also be in the group)
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. Best known is the internationally acclaimed Birds in Art, an annual juried exhibition that showcases a variety of artistic styles – from impressionism to satirical caricature – created by artists the world over and documented in a full-color catalogue.
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 have been added. The grounds cover four acres highlighted by the Margaret Woodson Fisher Sculpture Garden, a formal English garden, attractive brick walkways, a shaded arbor and seating area, and on-site parking. All public spaces are accessible to visitors with disabilities.
An active program of eight to ten changing exhibitions each year encourages frequent visits as does an array of programs for children and adults scheduled to complement each exhibition. Regular programs such as Toddler Tuesday, Art Time for Tots, Art Buddies, Art Explorers, Foundations, and Activity Guides are supplemented with storytelling, lectures, videos, demonstrations, and bus trips. Not to be missed is OctoBIRDfest, the Museum’s biggest and birdiest family festival of the year.
Birds in Art opens to the public on the first Saturday following Labor Day every year and is on view for nine weeks. Specific Birds in Art education programs and special events will be available online by August 15 each year.
Please let me know if you are interested in helping with the tour. My email is sent to my phone, so if you get this later in the day, don’t be afraid to reply! Thank you so so much!
