WRAA is the Wisconsin Regional Artists Association, a non-profit organization, started in 1954 with just 36 members. WRAA’s mission then and now is to support Wisconsin Regional Art Program (WRAP) through the UW-Madison, Division of Continuing Studies. Today with over 500 members, WRAA members continue to participate in and promote WRAP exhibits and the annual WRAP State Exhibit and Conference. WRAA publications include Contour Notes, WRAP State Exhibit color catalog, WRAP Timely Treasures calendar, brochures and www.wraawrap.com. In addition, WRAA also kicks off the WRAP State Exhibit and Conference weekend by hosting Evening with the Arts artists’ reception which showcases WRAP State Award art, WRAA sponsored Statewide Teen Art Mentor Program and WRAA Tiny Treasures Exhibit, Competition and Sale. WRAA also solicits and distributes over $4500 in awards given out at the annual award ceremony which follows the annual WRAP State Exhibit Conference.
