This July in the Edith Carlson Gallery, WAM opens State Your Intentions: New Works in the WAM Collection. The exhibition showcases not only notable recent additions to the collection but also the intentionality of WAM’s collecting practice.

The Weisman Art Museum, in partnership with Augsburg University Art Galleries, is proud to present an evening with artist Danielle Krysa, the writer and curator behind the contemporary art site, The Jealous Curator. Krysa will give a talk, “How to Stop Being Creative: Excuses, Doubt, and Other Junk.” After the program, she’ll stick around for a reception and book signing for her most recent book, A Big Important Art Book—Now with Women, “profiles of unstoppable female artists and projects to help you become one.” (Krysa’s new book and workbook, A Big Important Artist – A Womanual, will both be on sale in the WAM Shop!)
This event is presented in partnership with the Augsburg University Art Galleries, who will present Krysa’s exhibition, as she turned tumors into treasures, she couldn’t help but wonder – do goldfish feel this naked?, from March 12 – May 8, 2020.
