Menghini Museum Art Show

Borderland Art display

The Annual Art Show held at Menghini Museum during the Leif Erikson Festival continues to impress. This show is growing in both the number of artists represented and the attendance. The first year of the show there were 20 artists, this year there were 46 and over 150 items on display! Some of the groups at this years 4th Annual Art Show were Borderland Arts, Northeast Wisconsin Technical College painting class, Les’ Artistes, and Through the Lens Photo Club.

This year featured the talents of Crystal Hogan singing, Roger Eklund playing his banjo with old favorites, and Kathy Falls entertained us with the soothing sound of her dulcimer.

Thank you to all the artists who participated and also to the people that came out to support the show. Here is just a small sample of what was on display.
