Green Bay Art Colony Inspirations from the Neville Opening This Weekend
Green Bay, WI—January 17, 2017— In 1915, nine women began working together in a group known as the Green Bay Art Club (it turned into the Green Bay Art Colony in 1928).  During the same year, the group organized its first exhibition in the basement of the former Green Bay Public Library.  This year’s exhibition pays tribute to the vast Neville Public Museum collection from which the artists garnered inspiration.  Artists chose artifacts and photos from the Neville’s collection to inspire their pieces.  Pieces chosen as inspiration will be on display with the artwork. 
Today, the Green Bay Art Colony is an active organization of artists from the area.  It includes many professional artists with significant reputations as well as talented emerging artists. 
Inspirations from the Neville opens to the public on Saturday, January 21.
