In 1895 sculptress Jean Pond Miner received an unusual honor for a woman of her day: her seven-foot tall allegorical statue "Forward" was given a prominent position at the Wisconsin State Capitol. "Forward" is an allegory of devotion and progress, qualities Miner felt Wisconsin embodied.
Collect your 2019 capitol ornament for this holiday season.
Please Note: The Wisconsin Historical Museum on Madison's Capitol Square, where many have purchased the annual ornament in the past, is temporarily closed to the public. Through the Wisconsin Historical Society, it is available only here, online at this time.
The stunning leaded glass skylight in the State Senate Chamber is the inspiration for the 2020 Wisconsin State Capitol Ornament. A wonderful, collectible gift for all Wisconsinites! Informative booklet and gift box included!
