WVA is a not-for-profit membership-based organization made up of visual artists working in a wide variety of media along with supporters of Wisconsin Art. It is united to advance opportunities and services for artists and the general public. It is committed to the importance and value of art and its creation in our society.
Since 2010, the NE Chapter of WVA has awarded a yearly prize for outstanding student artwork on the college level. This is not a scholarship, but a recognition of the caliber of their art itself and a means of encouragement for graduates to continue their work in the visual arts.
