Brittingham House History


In addition to its striking architecture, Brittingham House is also home to a notable collection of artwork. Tandem Press, a printmaking studio affiliated with the Department of Art in the School of Education at UW-Madison, provides the home with a rotation of prints. Permanent pieces include a number of original furnishings, an oil portrait of Thomas Brittingham, Sr., by J. C. Johansen, and an 18th-century Chinese screen.

The Brittingham House Art Invitational, 2001 to 2004, was an exhibition to showcase the artwork of visual artists in the University of Wisconsin System.
