WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY -- Most local folks know of Delavan’s storied circus connection. Not as many realize that at one time the city drew not only clowns and big top promoters, but a colony of accomplished, award-winning artists.
For almost two decades at the turn of the last century, artists flocked to the area. Some were regular summer visitors. Others made their homes here. And although Delavan’s original arts colony is gone, what remains is a collection of museum-worthy paintings in town that showcase those artists’ works and provide on their canvases a glimpse of what the city and its residents looked like more than a century ago.
