Note from Our Director


Dear Friends,

Fill the winter days with a visit to WKMA. Toyland: Artifacts of Youth continues through March 5 and
offers a nostalgic look at yesterday’s playthings. You may find something that you recall playing with
yourself! Just a few more days to catch Washington: The Myths and the Man, a fascinating look at
George Washington through documents alongside the lovely paintings of Philadelphia artist, Jean Leon
Gerome Ferris. Open now and continuing through April 30, something that will make you smile and
think “Wow, what’s that?”, is Big, Ugly, Hullabaloo featuring the work of UVA Wise political science
professor, Eric Drummond Smith. Opening February 23, Black History in Appalachia and Beyond will
explore life for Black Americans from Emancipation through the Civil Rights era.

The museum is open every day and admission is free.

Our exhibitions are always changing, and it is likely that you haven’t even seen all of the current ones yet. Visit us often!

Betsy K. White
