Note from Our Director
Happy Holidays to all our Friends and Supporters!
This holiday season is a very special time for us. On November 17, the Governor and First Lady of
Virginia, Glenn and Suzanne Youngkin, presented WKMA with the Spirit of Virginia Award in recognition
of the museum’s “positive intersection of art, history, culture, education, rehabilitation, workforce
readiness, and community engagement”. This significant honor comes as we plan for the largest gift the
museum has ever received, the Worrell Collection of Animal Art and the construction of a new wing to
house it. Our educational programs are growing – I am pleased to announce a new $150,000 grant from
the Educational Foundation of America for programming in the Art Lab – and the museum’s exhibitions
continue with a commitment to excellence and diversity…something for everyone!
WKMA is your museum. We remain committed to a policy of free admission and keeping all class fees
as low as possible. Please remember the museum as you plan your yearend giving. We are, indeed, on
the verge of something wonderful. Your support as we grow in our service is crucial, now more than ever.
We hope to see you here over the holidays! With all our best wishes,
Betsy K. White
