MAM Features Door County Park Photography in All Seasons

On Nov. 7, the Miller Art Museum in Sturgeon Bay will open its newest and final exhibit of 2015, Parks of Door County: Photographs Inspired by State and County Properties, a collection of works by artists who have varied interpretations of the peninsula’s protected state and county land. The public is invited to join the artists at the museum for an opening reception celebrating this new exhibit from 3 – 4:30 pm on Nov. 7. Opening remarks will be given by Executive Director Elizabeth Meissner-Gigstead, Paul Graf and Erik Aleson, representatives of Friends of Door County Parks, Inc. The event is free.

“Thirty-six local and regional photographers accepted the invitation to narrow down all the images they’ve taken in and around Door County’s parks, to one,” says Deborah Rosenthal, curator of exhibitions and collections. “Celebrating our place – the rich and unique environment that inspires the many artists who live, work and vacation in Door County – seemed appropriate to conclude the museum’s anniversary year,” she continued.

For 40 years the Miller Art Museum has served as a year-round venue for the visual and performing arts of Door County. The facility is the product of an inspired idea developed by the “Dean of Door County” artists, Gerhard CF Miller, and his wife Ruth Morton Miller in 1975, with the help of hundreds of supporters.

Invited photographers are from a cross-section of the men and women from around Wisconsin who regularly view the beauty of our area through a camera lens. The images in the exhibit span the seasons, and travel from Rock Island to Southern Door.

The exhibit will be on display through Dec. 30. For more information, call 920.746.0707 or go to
