Art connects us.
When the Wiregrass Museum of Art was founded, it was just an idea. And the community responded.
Today, as we rise to the unprecedented challenge of temporary closure due to the coronavirus, we’re responding to constantly evolving circumstances. WMA will continue its work beyond the museum’s walls by providing avenues for self-expression and community cohesion through the arts.
During this time, art is still needed. Art builds fun and engaging learning environments within our homes, and brings joy, comfort, and inspiration to our lives. Importantly, art gives us meaningful ways to relate to each other.
WMA is inspiring its Wiregrass neighbors to connect with one another by learning and sharing their experiences from home in new and innovative ways. We’re also adapting our resources to provide exhibitions and art education online, and will continue to provide administrative and creative support for artists. Our resilient mission remains at the forefront of all that we do.
If you’re looking to contribute in a meaningful way during this time, consider making a gift to WMA today.
