Woodstock Artists Association & Museum
The Woodstock Artists Association & Museum (WAAM) is a unique fusion of a contemporary artist membership, a landmark Permanent Collection, an Archives & Library, and a dynamic educational outreach program. Sharing the region's cultural heritage and inspiring the current and next generation of artists through programs and exhibitions is central to WAAM's mission "to promote and foster the visual arts, art education, and artists." Presenting a vibrant series of contemporary exhibitions annually, the WAAM offers artists within a 50-mile radius of Woodstock an unparalleled opportunity to exhibit their artwork and to connect with a community of artists in the region. The WAAM's landmark Permanent Collection and Archives & Library comprise more than 2,200 works of art, objects and historic material representing the lives and careers of artists associated with the Woodstock region. The Art for Education program serves over 700 students throughout the Ulster County school system and their families in onsite and in-school programming. Since its founding in 1919, the WAAM remains a vital cultural presence serving the Hudson Valley region for nearly 100 years. Held annually each Fall the WAAM Benefit Fine Arts Auction features artwork from the historic Woodstock Art Colony and fine examples of modern American and European paintings, prints, photography, sculpture and objet d'art.
