You have expressed interest in an Art Movement that is called WHAM (What’s Happen’n Art Movement). WHAM Art Association is an organization that primarily consists of artists from the West Valley of the Phoenix, Arizona area, representing a wide range of artistic disciplines. WHAM’s purpose is to support, advance, and promote artistic awareness, participation, and expression in all areas of the Visual ARTS where Art enriches the lives of our community and to make Art a part of the fabric of our society. WHAM has been promoting activities including group exhibitions, art walks, community participation in public art, gallery shows, educational forums about Art history or specific art topics, publications about coming events (community art calendar), demonstrations, art competitions for youth, seniors and specific ‘at-risk’ groups, supporting local schools in class rooms by providing needed art instruction, and an avenue for artistic collaboration between artists, community, and local government.
WHAM primarily promotes the ARTS in the West Valley being Inclusive not Exclusive, and strives to have a credible organization in place as the Valley continues to build their cities and businesses. Currently, we are the only Community Art Center in the West Valley. We welcome someone of your artistic status in our organization but you don’t have to be an artist, we need advocates as well. You must be 18 years or older. Your artwork must be originally made by you. Some art work is juried for specific art exhibits and other events are for all members.
WHAM is an organization of volunteers and each member must volunteer at least 12 hours per year to be a member in good standing and to participate in exhibits. There are many different opportunities to do volunteer work for WHAM Art Association, just jump in and you’ll find an area that fits you.
