The Miller Art Museum announces the opening of “People and Places and Things, Oh My!” on March 7, the second exhibit in the organization’s 40th anniversary year. Comprised of pieces from the Miller’s permanent collection, the display will feature paintings, photographs, drawings, and printmaking by artists from, or with ties to, Wisconsin including a strong representation of the work of Door County artists. Visitors of all ages are encouraged to view and be inspired by the more than 20 works in the show and to engage in gallery activities on the exhibit theme of people, places and things, including a curated selection of books by Beth Lokken, Youth Services Librarian for the Door County Library, in a fun, engaging Dr. Seuss-inspired space.

The general public is invited to attend a free opening reception on March 7 from 3 to 4:30 pm. Light refreshments will be served.

Door County artists included in the exhibit are Daniel B. Anderson, Craig Blietz, Donna Brown, Judi Ekholm, Jim Ingwersen, and Charles L. Peterson.

“I am thrilled to invite the public to enjoy and learn about works in our collection and, given the organization’s reputation for diversity in programming and artistic quality, I am excited, too, to expand the scope of this particular exhibit to include an element children can get excited about,” said Elizabeth Meissner-Gigstead, executive director.

“People and Places and Things, Oh My!” runs through April 13. For more information, call 920.746.0707 or go to
