NEENAH, Wis. - June 27, 2017 - PRLog -- Bergstrom-Mahler Museum of Glass is pleased to announce its 43nd Annual Arts Festival will be held on Sunday, July 16th from 10am until 4pm. The Arts Festival, presented by Bergstrom Automotive of Neenah, is held in Riverside Park, directly across the street from the museum.

The festival features fine arts and crafts from 70 regional artists working in a variety of media.

Chainsaw carving demonstrations will be happening throughout the day.

About Bergstrom-Mahler Museum of Glass
Bergstrom-Mahler Museum of Glass is a regional art museum with glass-focused programming. The museum has four permanent glass collections: the world's most representative collection of antique and contemporary glass paperweights, a stunning collection of Germanic drinking vessels dating from 1573, a collection of Victorian-Era decorative glass and an ever-growing collection of contemporary glass.  The museum also offers a schedule of temporary glass exhibitions, as well as studio classes in glass for youth and adults.

The museum operates as a private, not for profit, 501(c)(3) organization, independent of the City of Neenah and other organizations similarly named. Since it opened in 1959, museum general admission has been free for everyone, always; it relies on private and corporate donations to continue to do so.
