The Walter Anderson Museum of Art recently unveiled their long anticipated, brand new addition. The approximately 2,000 square foot expansion includes two new galleries, an entry pavilion, and an expanded store.
The expansion project was paid for through a $700,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development. The Jackson County Board of Supervisors contributed $18,000 to this project and will be at the event to present WAMA with the check.
Along with unveiling the expansion WAMA will be celebrating the opening of two new exhibits. In the main gallery, Dusti Bongé: The Lion Roars explores the work of Dusti, a contemporar and close friend of Walter Anderson. On display in the new galleries will be Painting People: The Social Art of Walter Anderson, which features many works never before exhibited.
Charter Bank is proud to be a sponsor of the WAMA project. We invite you to join us in celebrating The Walter Anderson Museum of Art in their latest unveiling. You can visit WAMA on Washington Avenue in downtown Ocean Springs.
