The Wiregrass Museum of Art inspires a lifelong appreciation for the visual arts by providing innovative educational programs that engage diverse audiences through the collection and exhibition of quality works.

The museum was founded in 1988 in an effort to improve the quality of life in Dothan, and the Wiregrass Area. The Museum is generously supported by private donors and receives funding from the City of Dothan.


“As the region's foremost museum of fine art, WMA serves our diverse population by connecting art and education, museum and community, and generations and cultures. Here's to the next 25 years of exploring new ideas while expanding existing programs.” - Dana-Marie Lemmer
