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 confluences 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.

With this year’s theme and sub-theme: “Seasons of the Sugar River— mirrored landscape, flora and fauna of the prairie”—Artists are encouraged to explore the beauty and reinterpret, perhaps, expand their vision of how the flora and fauna are seen in our watershed.
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.
