Collector's Showcase 2017 will focus on six Brown County Icons and will raise money to replace one that was lost.. Stonehead.

Icons:
1. Brown County Art Gallery
2. Brown County State Park
3. Brown County Courthouse
4. Bean Blossom Covered Bridge
5. Old Log Jail
6. T.C. Steele State Historic Site
7. Stonehead

Using paintings, past and present, etchings, and old and new photographs, the Gallery will show the history and current status of the 7 icons and reveal a new marker plan for the Stonehead Site. Additional participants include the Brown County Historical Society and Peaceful Valley Preservation.

How do you replace an icon? The Stonehead marker created by Henry Cross over 160 years ago is gone. The Brown County Art Gallery Foundation is heading up an effort to create a new marker and we need your help. The cost of the new marker which celebrates the work of Henry Cross in its design is $10,000 dollars including installation.

You can donate to the marker fund by clicking on the button below. Help us restore some Brown County history!
