Michael Meilahn

Pickett, WI, USA


Michael Meilahn lives, makes art, and grows crops at his family farm homestead in central Wisconsin. Michael traveled to Europe to research and study glass. He served in Bolivia with the Peace Corp and earned his Master’s Degree in Art at Illinois State University. Michael resisted mixing the two careers by purposefully keeping them separate. As time moved on, the art imagery became a story about farming and farming grew to be a business that demanded a more creative venue. Michael has consistently exhibited in National and International galleries, exhibitions; and collections throughout his career such as: Museum of Art and Design, NY; Corning Museum of Glass, NY; Flint Institute of Art, MI; Haggin Museum of Art, CA; Figge Museum of Art, IA; and the International Exhibition of Glass, Kanazawa, Japan. He is honored that his work was chosen for Corning’s New Glass Review in 1980, 87, 2000 & 2010. He currently serves on the Board of Directors at the Bergstrom-Mahler Museum of Glass in Neenah, Wisconsin.
