The Cedarburg Art Museum was formed within the last year when its initial 49 paintings were donated to the people of Cedarburg by a trust fund left for the community by Ozaukee Bank. The Museum is located in a historic Victorian home on the main street in Cedarburg. We opened our doors in June, 2013. Our mission is to establish and then to maintain a permanent forum that will collect, exhibit and preserve the artwork of Cedarburg and its environs for the ages. We offer juried exhibitions and also have a Gift Shop that is dedicated to local artists.
