 AVA logo
Langlade County's Historical Museum is also the home of the Deleglise Cabin, Langlade County's first homestead. AVA has selected the cabin as part of its logo to remind visitors we are part of, and located in the Museum.

Fox Tranquil Perk
Linda Robinson's pencil drawing FOX was the overwhelming favorite of everyone who attended AVA's Mother's Day reception at the AVA Gallery in the Langlade County Historical Museum. Linda took home the People's Choice award, and a check for $50. AVA artists also liked FOX. It tied with Danna Gabriel's TRANQUIL PERK. Danna and Linda will split the $50 Artist's Choice award check. Both will also receive ribbons recognizing their efforts.
