In recent years, Trout Museum of Art programming has outgrown our current 100-year-old home, with the building also requiring significant investment to the facility. It was our goal to stay within the Downtown Appleton communiity.
This new premier space for the museum has a planning 10,000 sq ft exhibition space. Large, open galleries that enable flexibility in programming for short and long-term exhibitions that can flow out into the welcome center and hallways, utilizing every surface as a potential location for artwork and community engagement. Merging sustainable and programming considerations, large open windows are thoughtfully worked into the welcome center, café, store, and classrooms to bring about a deeper connection with the larger Fox Cities community.
