Welcoming Wichita with updated WAM gathering spaces
Beginning in early January, the Wichita Art Museum will transform important public spaces.
Due to construction, WAM's main entrance is closed. Enter the museum on the east side of the building through the Living Room doors. Look for the Tom Otterness sculpture Dreamer's Awake near the doors to the temporary entrance. In addition to WAM's parking lot, visitor parking is available across Museum Boulevard south of the museum.
The Boeing Foyer--the museum's main entry and lobby--will have a new face to make arriving at the museum easier and engaging.
Visitors will be delighted by transformations in the S. Jim and Darla Farha Great Hall, where new fixtures and furniture will invite people to lounge, catch up, share a coffee, and trade stories about their gallery experiences.
The Living Room--the museum's interactive and boisterous spot for activities that expand on gallery looking and art concepts--will be completely renovated.
Museum visitors will need to excuse our mess through the winter as construction takes place! Join us in the spring when we reopen these spaces and celebrate the new face of WAM.
Chihuly Bridge Temporarily Deinstalled
Due to the renovations in the Boeing Foyer, Dale Chihuly's Persian Seaform Ceiling (also known as the Chihuly Bridge) has been temporarily deinstalled from WAM's main entrance. Once renovation work is complete and the entrance has been reopened, the Chihuly Bridge will return to the Boeing Foyer.
