Don't miss the Neville’s own major, juried art exhibition! This annual exhibition has been held each year (with a few exceptions) since it was established by Museum Director Earl G. Wright in 1942. Paintings, drawings, original prints, photographs, sculpture, and ceramics were all entered by artists living throughout Northeast Wisconsin and Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Always highly competitive, only one in three or sometimes only one in two artworks entered were selected for the exhibition.
This year’s juror is Randall Berndt, co-director and curator at the James Watrous Gallery of the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts, and Letters in the Overture Center for the Arts, Madison, WI.

What was Appleton like during the Progressive Era (1850 – 1920)? The turn of the century was a period of speculation and excitement. Americans felt the excitement of world fairs and new technologies entering their daily lives. This new exhibit at the History Museum hinges on Appleton’s evolution from a fledgling manufacturing town to a modern industrial center. Through a collection of 3,000 photographs, amateur photographer W.D. Schlafer captured this rapidly changing environment during the Progressive Era in the Fox Cities. Visitors will see how much Appleton and the Fox Cities evolved as new technologies and ideas changed the lives of area residents during this transformative period.
