Wisconsin Visual Artists, Formerly Known as Wisconsin Painters & Sculptors

Year inducted: 2004

This long lived artist organization was established in 1900 as the Society of Milwaukee Artists. The name was changed to Wisconsin Painters & Sculptors in 1913, and in 2008 to Wisconsin Visual Artists, Inc. This group is one of less than a half dozen American professional art organizations that have survived for more than 110 years. The vast majority of early Wisconsin artists who have been nominated for the Wisconsin Visual Arts Lifetime Achievement Awards have been members of WP&S at one time or another. Today, it has three chapters throughout the state with many hundreds of members. It has had international art exchanges, and it continues to provide significant exhibitions throughout Wisconsin, including the Wisconsin Artists Biennial which is open to all WI artists.
