Calling all Emily the Strange Fans!

Rob Reger
To help kickoff WAM's Meow exhibition we are excited to announce that Friday, February 19 will be Emily the Strange Day at the Museum. The exhibit Rob Reger's Emily the Strange and her Four Bad Kitties is the first of many cat-inspired exhibits that are all part of the Meow project. While the full exhibition opens on Friday, May 20, Emily and her four kitties (Mystery, Miles, NeeChee, and Sabbath) will be taking over Helmutt's House starting February 10th.

On Emily the Strange Day on Friday, February 19, please join us for special Emily the Strange themed art activities, story time, and more. Free admission to the Museum will be granted for any visitors who come dressed as Emily… or her cats.
