MONROE - How does an artist residing in Glarus, Switzerland come to exhibit his work in Monroe? In July 2012, artist Walter Lehmann sent a sequence of email inquiries to various contacts throughout Green County regarding an exhibition of his "cow portraits." His messages were forwarded to the Monroe Arts Center, and as the saying goes, "the rest is history."
