In Cedarburg Art Museum’s seventh annual juried exhibition, 65 artworks were selected from 116 entries of 75 artists in 12 states by juror Annemarie Sawkins. “Masters as Muses” reveals the astute choices of 58 artists for the guiding principles of their muses. From an ancient Greek Zeus sculpture to Rembrandt to Monet, Modernists, Warhol, and contemporary muses, artists reveal where their inspirations are derived.
