August 28 – November 7, 2021
The Trout Museum of Art and co-hosts Community First Credit Union and Bergstrom Automotive are excited to return with Made to Order 2.0, an exhibition connecting commissioners (art-buyers) with Wisconsin artists to create one-of-a-kind, customized works of art. TMA spent the first part of 2021 creating relationships with artists and interested art-buyers, resulting in 55 commissioned pieces by TMA supporters. These artworks alone raised $95,000 for the artists and TMA.
Commissioning an artwork is a collaborative experience between the artist and buyer. Artists create works in their style based on what they and the buyer discuss, such as color, size, and subject matter. Artists put their vision, creativity, craftsmanship, and more into each piece. The buyer enjoys a front-row seat to watch their artwork come alive.
TMA is proud of the lasting connections this exhibition creates within our community and grateful for the support of so many artists and community members.
