Prom Night at WMA’s Annual Member Party

WMA celebrated its vibrant member community with this year’s annual member party, One Night Only: Prom Night on Thursday, May 5th. Attendees enjoyed taking inspiration from the theme, wearing their favorite prom looks over the decades, and posed for classic prom photos within the museum’s galleries.

One Night Only offered members a chance to connect with each other through art and artmaking inside the museum’s transformed spaces for prom night. Guests created their own paper flower corsages and boutonnieres within the Blumberg Gallery, surrounded by works in the exhibition Exquisite Disorientation: Sarah Marshall, and enjoyed music while taking in Sonya Yong James: The Eye of a Needle and The Witch Doctor’s Chapel.

 

And, thanks to our community’s response to the museum’s annual member drive, this base of supporters grew even more this year, with new members joining from Dothan, Enterprise, Headland, Daleville, Troy, Slocomb, Midland City, and Port St. Joe, and Malone in Florida.

At WMA, members connect with our community at fun events, exciting exhibitions, and innovative programs, and continue to discover the art and artists of our time. WMA is a great place to explore new ideas, find special interests, and be inspired.

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.

Refund Policy

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.
