Get Lost in the Wonderful World of Art During Art Colony Weekend

Steeped in rich art heritage, Brown County has and always will be a haven for artists! Drawn to the area’s breathtaking vistas, lush scenery, and interesting characters, artists migrated to the region nearly a century ago to establish their own art colony, one of the first of its kind in the Midwest.

This September, Brown County will pay special tribute to its historic past and present-day art heritage during Art Colony Weekend, September 8-10!
