Stories from WMA
There’s something new in the neighborhood – Free Little Art Supplies Libraries!
WMA has launched its newest project, in partnership with Dothan Leisure Services, and with support from Wiregrass Foundation. Free Little Art Supplies Libraries are now installed in three locations, Andrew Belle Community Center, Westgate Park near the entrance to the aquatics center, and in the museum’s Education Gallery.
Museum staff, volunteers, and WMA Teens transformed retired newspaper distribution boxes, donated by The Dothan Eagle, making them into colorful and fun stations where residents and visitors can find art supplies, activities, and art books. We encourage a ‘take one, leave one’ approach, and even encourage visitors to leave their own works of art for others to appreciate.
Free Little Art Supplies Libraries will be refreshed regularly with new supplies, books, and kits. By providing access to high-quality artmaking resources, we hope to encourage everyone in the Wiregrass to be more creative and innovative, and to enjoy making and sharing art in the place they call home.
