While WAM is now open to the general public, our staff and partnering artists continue to develop programming to engage audiences and build community online. WAM events, programs, workshops, and tours will mostly be online until further notice.
Wherever we are, at home or in a fabulous building by the river, WAM is committed to shining a light on ways artists and makers bring joy, respite, and new insight on the world around us, especially in these uncertain times.
Looking for something to do with kids? Check out our education team’s ARTFUL WRITING kit, filled with prompts and creative activities geared toward helping learners of all ages perceive, analyze, and write about art. It’s all free and ready for you to explore.
The Weisman has partnered with Independent Curators International (ICI) and dozens of museums internationally to bring you do it (home) and The Paper Sculpture Manual, two projects to stimulate creativity from home. do it (home) and The Paper Sculpture Manual are available to art spaces internationally free of charge, in response to the COVID-19 crisis.
Are you familiar with the Weisman’s impressive public art collection? Check out PUBLIC ART 25, a virtual tour of WAM’s public art collection located on the University of Minnesota Twin Cities campus. This experience offers a personal interactive tour of the public artworks added to the collection in the first 25 years of the museum’s Public Art on Campus program. Follow the mobile-friendly map, and you can take a walking tour, while responsibly keeping your distance from others. It’s a great way to experience a taste of the Weisman’s collection while the galleries are closed.
