The Wiregrass Museum of Art, founded in 1987 in Dothan, Alabama, is dedicated to inspiring a lifelong appreciation for the visual arts by providing innovative educational programs, access to its permanent collection, and a diverse schedule of exhibitions. The Museum’s primary collection includes American, fine decorative, and design arts from the early 20th century to the present.
With over 1,100 objects in its care, the Museum’s permanent collection consists primarily of works on paper, including pieces by Robert Indiana, Josef Albers, Victor Vasarely, and the largest public collection of Frank Stella prints in the state. Prominence is also given to the work of acclaimed Alabama artists, including Dale Kennington, John Kelly Fitzpatrick, Beverly Erdreich, Gary Chapman, Carolyn Sherer, and Scott Stephens, among others.
