Windgate Museum of Art is located on the campus of Hendrix College. The WMA presents outstanding art exhibitions, compelling educational programs, and invigorating social activities for students, faculty, staff, and visitors to campus. Free and open
to all, the museum uses hands-on experiences to train students in all facets of museum work, including curatorial research, collection management, educational and social programming, marketing and communications, as well as all aspects of exhibition research, planning, installation, and evaluation. The Windgate
Museum of Art is made possible with the generous support of the Windgate Foundation and the Alice L. Walton Foundation.
Our vision is to be the premier teaching art museum in Arkansas. We define a teaching art museum as one that prioritizes experiential learning opportunities for pedagogical purposes, making the museum a laboratory for learning, teaching, and self-realization.
The mission of the Windgate Museum of Art is to create meaningful museum experiences for students, faculty, staff, and visitors to the Hendrix College campus through exhibitions, programs, and experiential learning opportunities.
A Hendrix education is richly enhanced through engagement with beautiful, diverse, challenging, and innovative artwork.
Hands-on museum opportunities for students create pathways to cultural industry careers.
Diversity of participants, art forms, and curatorial perspectives enriches our museum and the student experience.
Inter-disciplinary experiences enhance creativity and learning.
Artistic risk-taking and free expression are essential.
Building strong relationships with those outside of Hendrix is critical to our success.
