Please join us for the 2016 Annual Meeting! WARM has had a busy and successful year since our last annual meeting, from the Guerilla Girls and Women and Money exhibitions to a screening and discussion of “Who Does She Think She Is?”.
We will report on all the pieces that made the last 12 months great, and what we are working on to make next year even better. All we need is you! This year’s meeting will focus on confirming a new mission statement to guide WARM into the future.
**NOTE: We moved the date out by 1 week to accommodate 1st Thursday Open Studios in the NE Arts District. Please update your calendar accordingly!
Regular Warm Events:
WARM has three series of events: WARM Conversations, WARM Forums and Fresh Art. Please scroll down to see each event type listed below. If you would like to view all the events in order of date visit the WARM Calendar of Events.
Join us for monthly visits to area art shows, arts organizations and studios. Generally we tour a show or facility and then discuss the art and socialize. These events are free and open to the public unless otherwise noted. For information about WARM Conversations, email email@example.com.
