Celebrate All Things Art During Art Colony Weekend!

Did you know that Brown County is one of America’s original art colonies? Did you know it’s also home to one of the oldest art galleries in the nation? That’s right, around here art is more than just something to admire, it’s a way of life…and it always has been!

That’s exactly why this September Brown County will celebrate its historic past during the 4th annual Art Colony Weekend, September 7-9.
