Arts are an integral part of Portage County and Stevens Point is home to three amazing and very different galleries.
- Carlsten Art Gallery – You’ll find the Carlsten Art Gallery on the second floor of the Noel Fine Arts Center. It features a rotation of both well-known and student artists with works inspired by books, reading and printing. Note the museum is only open during the school year, from September through May.
- Gallery Q – This downtown gallery is an artists’ cooperative housed in a beautifully restored building on Main Street in Stevens Point. The gallery features works from professional artists working in Wisconsin, many of them from central Wisconsin. Gallery Q’s current show is an art sale with oil paintings, crafts, ceramic works, fiber arts, watercolors and more available for purchase through December.
- Scarabocchio Art Museum – You’ll find this museum in downtown Stevens Point as well, on the corner of Main and Water streets. It’s a joint venture between the city of Stevens Point and the university. Scarabocchio is the Italian word for scribble or doodle and this museum features works of this style by Dr. David L. Smith and other rotating artists.
