This website is dedicated to the Wisconsin Visual Art Lifetime Achievement Awards, and offers a selection of donated art that can be sold to benefit the ongoing work of the Lifetime Awards. All the objects have been given for purpose of sales by individuals and organizations to help the WVALAA and its annual events. In addition to the items shown here there are many more fine pieces by Wisconsin Artists available.
Since 2004 the WVALAA has provided an annual award to artists, patrons, authors, instructors and institutions who have distinguished themselves thru a lifetime of involvement in the visual arts, and in a manner which has benefitted the art culture of our state. A committee of knowledgable persons seek nominations annually and each year select a group of nominees to receive a lifetime achievement award during a reception and awards program.
The three entities which have created and maintained the annual awards include The Museum of Wisconsin Art, West Bend; the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts and Letters, Madison; and the statewide organization Wisconsin Visual Artists, Inc.
