With this year’s theme, artists are invited to explore the "familial vistas beyond the fenceposts" that they see in our watershed. The places that tell the stories of the family farms in our watershed, that perhaps they go back to time and time again for renewal and inspiration and that exemplify to their “places of the heart.”

This exhibition seeks to showcase the scenic landscapes of the Sugar River Watershed from the headwaters region in western Dane County to the lower basin where the river converges with the Pecatonica River in Northern Illinois. A popular feature of the exhibition is the array of science exhibits geared for children and adults that explore and illustrate the geography of our watershed and the role of our natural and cultural landscapes in influencing water quality.

The Lower Sugar River Watershed Association (LSRWA) is a not-for-profit conservation organization based in Brodhead Wisconsin, dedicated to empowering citizens with experience and knowledge to steward land and water resources in the Lower Sugar River Watershed. The Seasons of the Sugar River Exhibition is sponsored through a partnership between LSRWA, Monroe Art Center, and supported by contributions from local food purveyors and merchants.
