The Windgate Museum of Art is opening on the Hendrix College campus in fall 2020. The Museum will not only provide visual art for the campus and Conway communities to enjoy and from which to learn, but it will do so in a way that boldly complements the tenets of a Hendrix liberal arts education for our students. Our Museum seeks to fully immerse our students in the total experiences of creating, curating, and celebrating the power of art within our wider world.
We are in the final stages of ensuring the Museum's success for the coming decades by fully funding the Windgate Museum of Art Endowment. Donors of all gift levels can now be part of providing ongoing experiential opportunities for generations of future students and faculty. By doing so, they will help us fulfill a $1 million challenge grant that will provide the Endowment needs. Once fully funded, the WMA endowment will annually support the following initiatives:
- Film series
- Student museum field trips to major museums and student museum visit grants to area schools
- Exhibition catalogues and Senior Studio Art Exhibition catalogues
- Museum Associates, Gallery Associates, and Gallery Educators
- "First Fridays" at the WMA
