Art Mob is a group of WAM supporters who enjoy special invitations to meet artists and attend unique events, like those below, throughout the year. For a minimum contribution of $300 per year (or $25 + monthly), you have access to special Art Mob experiences, customized for our group of WAM enthusiasts, creating moments of connection that enhance our creative community and help us get better acquainted with one another. This year’s events include private artist-led exhibition tours, an immersive artist’s studio visit experience, and a WAM-curated behind the scenes look at the Midwest Art Conservation Center (MACC).
