WMA’s temporary closure to continue
At WMA, we’re keeping you in mind.
Per the March 27, 2020 order from Governor Kay Ivey, WMA will remain temporarily closed to the public past the museum’s previously published reopening date of April 8th. As we await further notice from state and federal public health authorities on appropriate steps to take in the prevention of the spread of COVID-19, we remain committed to promoting social cohesion through access to quality contemporary art, artists, and art education.
WMA’s mission is resilient, and our board, staff, and volunteers are working diligently to continue to make our resources available to as many as possible. We believe in the transformative power of art, especially in times of need, and are tapping into our own creativity and innovation to respond quickly over the next few weeks and months.
Support at every level, from artists, our Wiregrass community, regional partners in education, and funders, is critical to WMA’s ability to fulfill its mission. Membership funds, donations, grants, and corporate partnerships help the museum remain adaptive and responsive. In the next few weeks and months, your support will help WMA continue to offer digital resources for schools, educators, homeschooling families, and will provide ways for our community to stay socially and culturally connected.
Thank you to all of our members, donors, and friends for the continued support.
We’re looking forward to the day we can gather again, but right now we have a question for you: What you would like to see from the museum in these coming weeks? Send your special requests to firstname.lastname@example.org.
