Virtual Artist Talk: Willie Cole

WMA presents a virtual conversation with Willie Cole, exhibiting artist in Nice Work if You Can Get It. Listen to Cole speak about the scope of his work and the connections he makes to his life and the lives of others. Cole’s artistic practice centers on postmodernism and cultural appropriation, using household and everyday objects to decontextualize and transform them into art. Cole will discuss his current project in Italy, a collaboration with designer Rei Kawabuko for COMME DES GARÇONS. His artist talk will focus on the topic, “Artist Survival Techniques, Pre- and Post-Pandemic”. Attendees will be able to submit questions for a Q&A session.

This program is part of WMA’s ongoing Visiting Artist Series, which will focus on themes and inspirations from the museum’s collections-based exhibitions throughout 2021.

The talk is free, but registration is required. Sign up using the link below:

Youth Art Education Policy

Outside of tours, family days, and open house events, individuals who are not enrolled in a class are not allowed in WMA classrooms except by written permission of the Executive Director. Parents may not join children in the classroom during instruction times in order to ensure an atmosphere conductive to creativity. It is important to limit the number of adults to keep the focus on the kids, their learning, and to accommodate limited seating in the studio. Parents are welcome to stay in the museum during class but must remain outside of the classroom during instruction time.

Museum educators are experienced in creating positive learning environments for all ages and are required to go through a background check to ensure the safety of our students. Parents and guardians are encouraged to visit the studio at the end of class to see what their child has created. All docents and volunteers working with children are also required to go through background checks.

Thank you for understanding our policy and priority on the safety and well-being of participating students.

The Wiregrass Museum of Art may cancel any class with insufficient enrollment; students will be notified and given a full refund. If a student withdraws at least 1 week before the class begins, he/she will be refunded for the full cost of the class. If a student withdraws 24 hours before the class begins, he/she will be refunded for half the cost of the class. There are no refunds after the start date of class, and membership fees are nonrefundable. Students are not enrolled until complete payment is received.
