Note from Our Director

January 18, 2022

Dear Friends,

All of us at WKMA hope you have enjoyed happy holidays and are settling into a cozy winter.  Despite the cold…brrrr…there are interesting things to do.  Your museum has a full array of exhibitions and educational programs, workshops, lectures, or just enjoying being in the museum.  The Art Lab is well worth a look.  Its resident artists, workshops and classes, Digital Lab and more are ready to provide you with rewarding times. Thrifty Thursdays is new, and family activities now include Imagination Station on the Main Lobby level and Family Guides for looking at the exhibits together. Current Exhibits include the Cultural Heritage Permanent Collection and May the Circle Be Unbroken, a moving and thoughtful review of the circle of life in our region.  From These Hills, located on Level 3, represents a snapshot of the work being created today right here in our region.  This biennial exhibit, now approaching its 30th year, is the museum’s way of celebrating our region’s artists.  Always guest-curated, this year’s exhibit was selected by Michael Rooks, Weiland Family Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at Atlanta’s High Museum of Art.

With all our best wishes, 

Betsy K. White
