The Wiregrass Museum of Art (WMA) invites area teens to its second annual Teen Night on Saturday, April 22nd, from 4:30 to 7:00 p.m. Hosted by WMA Teens, a council of eight teen students from schools across the Wiregrass, the event is free and open to all area students ages 13 to 18.
WMA Teens create programs for teens, by teens during the school year, and Teen Night is an opportunity for area students to participate in artmaking with various mediums and techniques at creation stations throughout the museum. All galleries will be open for students to enjoy exhibitions, experience a variety of live entertainment, and have food and drink.
“I’m excited for Teen Night and I hope that we can show the thrill that comes from creativity. Our whole theme this year has been expression, and our goal is to allow teens of the Wiregrass to express themselves through the works that they create and also have a fun time. It’s very important to give teens like myself opportunities to have a community where we can make things and the Wiregrass Museum of Art provides that. I hope to see everyone there!” said Memphis Mortimer, WMA Teens member.
WMA Teens is supported by a grant from the Alabama State Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts. Teen Night is sponsored by Tyndall Federal Credit Union, with additional support from Chick-fil-A East Dothan.
