Since 2001 with the very first Cedarburg Plein Air Event, either the Ozaukee Bank or its later foundation called The Gift to the Future Fund has provided the event’s Best of Show Purchase Award.  All of these stellar artworks are now in the Cedarburg Art Museum Collection.  Thirteen of these Best of Show paintings are on display at the museum this summer while the remainder are on display at the Cedarburg Public Library year-round.
