WAM Director Dr. Patricia McDonnell kicks off Art Chatter – November 2017

Part open mic, part thought cocktail, part happy hour on a Friday night, listen in as caffeinated ideas unfold. Each presenters has 20 slides showing for 20 seconds each–say what you mean, get to the point, and then sit down. WAM presents a lineup of local artists, musicians, and designers–creative types of every stripe–in streamlined offerings about what’s up and on their minds.

Friday, October 1

Art Chatter – October 2019

Friday, November 12
Oops, Patricia Almost Forgot!
Select creatives were overlooked by Patricia for 10 years. OMG! This final Art Chatter lineup features incredible talents in Wichita that Patricia kinda forgot to invite. On the last Art Chatter evening for Patricia, she gets to include whomever she wants, right? Again, this night will include cash bar, Muse Cafe dining, and a live band. Don’t miss the TGIF fun!
