Welcoming Wichita with updated WAM gathering spaces
Beginning in early January, the Wichita Art Museum will transform important public spaces.
Starting Tuesday, January 7, 2020, the museum's main entrance will be closed. The temporary entrance to the building will be on the east side of the museum near the Arkansas River and Stackman Drive. In addition to WAM's parking lot, visitor parking is available across Museum Boulevard just south of WAM.
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.
