Echoes: A response to objects in WMA’s permanent collection by the Alabama Women’s Caucus for Art

October 19-December 29, 2018

Art museums are vitally important. They collect and interpret objects, reminding us that culture is never built by accident. Popular or otherwise, culture is designed by people communicating with each other from generation to generation. All of us who make art have at some point been moved by the work of other artists. Responding to that work is both a constructive and destructive process, leading us to new and different understandings. This is why members of the Alabama Women’s Caucus for Art will make and show work in response to objects in Wiregrass Museum of Art’s permanent collection.

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.
