Wiregrass Museum of Art

Wiregrass Museum of Art

Dothan, AL

Established in 1991, the Wiregrass Museum of Art & Conference Center is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing art and art education to the Wiregrass region.

Located in one of Dothan’s oldest buildings, a converted Power Plant from 1913, the Museum’s focus is on American and Southern fine, decorative and design arts as well as American works of paper from 1945 to the present, with an emphasis on Alabama artists and women artists.

The Wiregrass board of trustees selected Lord Aeck Sargent to lead the project to rehabilitate and expand the museum. One of the goals of the project is to preserve the heritage of downtown Dothan by making the museum a centerpiece of the community and an arts destination for the Dothan citizens, as well as the thousands of visitors the visit from outside the area.

Once completed, the museum will provide an improved educational program of classes, tours, lectures and other activities that relate to the interpretation and understanding of the arts in the Wiregrass region.
