Weekends and Wednesdays with WAM

Wednesdays feature exhibition-related programs such as lectures, discussions, films, performances, panels, and more. Each program will offer a more in-depth, intimate look at an exhibition or topic. Upcoming events

Weekends with the Weisguides

Join WAM’s volunteer tour guides, the Weisguides, for interactive tours and art-making activities. During each program, a new thematic connection will be made to an exhibition or the building architecture. Visitors can tour the museum, interact with guides and other patrons, and participate in an art-making activity. Check our events calendar for upcoming dates.

Public Tours

Free guided public tours are offered each Saturday and Sunday at 1 p.m. Tours are thematic and have a topic that relates to current exhibitions. Tours focus in-depth on a current exhibition or artwork/artist.
