Education and Lifelong Learning
PreK-12 students and learners of all ages explore their creativity, cultivate critical thinking, and learn new skills through hands-on experiences and public programming.

Innovation, Creativity, and Economic Dynamism
The visual arts are a vibrant resource for the vitality of our communities, and WMA cultivates our rural region into a center for growth by providing creative and financial support for artists, exhibitions, residencies, and special projects.

Wellness and Community Cohesion
Access to the arts inspires us to take an active role in our communities, whether in person at WMA or through its virtual platforms that reach audiences across the nation.

Civic Dialogue and Cultural Sharing
At WMA, we provide a platform for artists to tell the stories of the South, and for residents to join in that dialogue, creating meaningful connections to build cultural equity.
