Made to Order Premier

The Trout Museum of Art, with co-hosts Bergstrom Automotive and Community First Credit Union, invite you to a celebration of art at our Made to Order Premier.

Join us on Friday, August 28, 2020 at 6:00PM. This event will be hosted virtually unless we are able to gather in-person.

Our Made to Order match-making program pairs art-lovers with local artists to commission original and personal works of art. Artwork commissioned during this project will be showcased in this Made to Order exhibition.

View artwork commissioned by TMA supporters and created by the best of Wisconsin artists. This will be a night of art and support.

Support the Arts, Commission an Artwork.

Made to Order is designed to support artists and introduce art buying to those who are curious.
All the proceeds from commissioned artwork go directly to the artists and TMA programming.
