On the Art Scene

Chazen Museum of Art

Let Madison’s art scene inspire you this holiday season! Two worthwhile exhibits happening now are the 2016 Wisconsin Triennial at the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art (MMoCA) and Facades: Photographs by Marcus Brunetti at the Chazen Museum. Both feature thought-provoking work, whether through Brunetti’s hyper-rich, detailed photography of cathedrals and churches, or the sculptures and installations on display at the Triennial, reflecting the state of art in Wisconsin today. Before you leave, browse the MMoCA Museum Store and the Chazen Museum Shop for handcrafted, artist-made items perfect for holiday gifts.
