Give Creatively this Holiday Season!


Dear friend of the arts,

Have you been to William King Museum of Art lately? Have you read about  our exciting plans for the new Center for Studio Art & Education?  …or the new ground-level east entrance into the main museum and upgrades  to driveways, parking areas and the front-campus sculpture garden?

If you haven’t visited recently, please put a visit to the museum on  your holiday list of places to go. The new permanent gallery for the  Cultural Heritage Collection just debuted, and Dressed by Design  opened recently in time for the holidays. A sparkling exhibition of  haute couture fashion, it features the work of international designers,  Giorgio Armani, Alexander McQueen, and Ralph Lauren. Continuing exhibits  are the stunning large wood sculptures of Clintwood’s Fred Carter, the  biennial From These Hills featuring the latest works by  regional artists, and a small intimate collection of handmade figures  representing Mormon culture by Roanoke artist, Paige Turner.

Yes, lots going on! Our lively tradition of changing exhibitions  underscores our tagline, Never the Same Museum, and makes us a place to  enjoy often. Did you know that most of our exhibitions are original and  many, like those mentioned above, include art from our own region? Did  you know that our award-winning VanGogh Outreach program, which has  served second grades throughout more than twelve school districts for 20  years, is set to double in size over the next few years?

Your annual support goes a very long way in making it possible to  continue to bring to fruition top-quality exhibitions and deep  educational service to our region and, importantly, to grow. Won’t you  put us on your year-end giving list? All gifts to the Annual Fund are  100% tax deductible. Thank you, sincerely, from all of us at WKMA.

Happy Holidays,
Betsy White
