Milwaukee based artist Ryan Laessig was the judge this year. Here is what the judge had to say about the show:

The 2020 Waukesha County Courthouse Show brought new life during an uncertain time. This show brought artists of all styles, mediums, and passions forward.
All submissions had great talent and deserved to part of this jurying. Seeing these pieces gave me a great view of what is being made in 2020 and from Wisconsin.
Thank you for having me as a juror. This event is a fantastic showcase of rich talent.

Six awards were granted for the show comprising of three honorable mentions, third place, second place and best of show.
