Art and about: Take a stroll through the Trout from home


The community will be opening back up before we know it. 

Yet even then, many of us aren’t going to be comfortable taking recreational trips for quite some time as a certain virus remains in play.

Those who miss the museum experience can get a taste through their computer screens.

The 40th Annual SECURA Fine Arts Exhibition had been open for just about a month before Covid-19 relegated community members to their homes. Those who didn’t get an opportunity to stroll through the works — and for those who want to take another look — can peruse the exhibit online.

The virtual exhibit is available here.

It’s our region’s top competitive, juried fine arts exhibition and will include monetary prizes and ribbons to the top pieces. It feature works from 90 visual artists from throughout Wisconsin.

The virtual exhibit goes beyond a collection of images. It includes audio, artist information and words from the artists on their process and inspirations.

There are also price tags for those who are so inspired to make one of the works part of their personal collections.

The Trout, like so many institutions, is in need of support due to the public health crisis.

Those who can contribute have an opportunity to make a bigger impact.Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, gifts—including membership donations—will be matched dollar-for-dollar through June 30 up to $10,000. Click here to donate.
