Artists & Craftsmen Tour

Experience the excitement of a Brown County fall when the rolling hills are ablaze with colors. See breathtaking vistas and the places of rich beauty that inspired many artists and craftsmen to make Brown County their home.

During October you are invited to take a self-guided tour and visit the studios of selected potters, painters, weavers, and a stained glass artist—the people that make Brown County “The Art Colony of the Midwest” TM.
