About this collection

The Carroll University Wisconsin Artists Collection highlights the vibrant and exciting contributions to the arts made by Wisconsin artists in a state better known for industry and agriculture. It was established in the 1980s by long-time Carroll Art professor Marceil Pultarak and remains one of the few permanent collections in the state dedicated solely to the work of Wisconsin artists.

The growing collection consists of over 100 artists who were born
in Wisconsin or worked for significant portions of their careers in Wisconsin. Some of these artists have national reputations, others are known and admired locally; some are professional artists, others are teachers of art who have touched the lives of many generations of students in Wisconsin.

Art These artists work in a variety of media including painting, sculpture, photography, drawing, and mixed media, and their works encompass a wide range of subject matter. The multi-faceted nature of this collection makes it clear that there is no one style or tradition among Wisconsin artists. Rather, Wisconsin has been, and continues to be, home to a rich array of artists deeply engaged in the art of their time.

Works from the Wisconsin Artists Collection can be viewed in the public spaces on Carroll's campus and are accessible not only to Carroll students but to all art lovers in the community. The online collection gives full viewing access to all items from on campus computers.

Off campus viewers only have access to items in the collection where the artist has given permission to Carroll University to display in an online format.
