WMA's yard party brought art outdoors for its biggest fundraiser of the year

By  | 

DOTHAN, AL (WTVY) This year’s Yard Party for Art at the Wiregrass Museum of Art attracted a big crowd to the lawn outside the museum on Museum Avenue in downtown Dothan. The party is the largest annual fundraiser for the museum’s art education programs.

People danced in the grass throughout the evening Saturday in front of the outdoor stage for several hours as musicians from Atlanta, Birmingham, Nashville, and Pensacola Beach played.

Partygoers tried out the interactive installation called “Magnifying Moments.” People hopped on two 1800’s era high-wheel bikes facing each other and their shadows were projected onto a large screen along with video. One of the creators is from the Wiregrass. Artist Jacob Phillips is from Rehobeth.

A silver Airstream camper displayed Butch Anthony’s art in the mobile museum which is part of his “Museum of Wonder” exhibit at WMA. It is on display until September 30th.
