WARM (Women's Art Resources of Minnesota) will celebrate its 40th Anniversary with an exhibition containing 2D and 3D selections from diverse female members throughout the state.
WARM was established in 1973 by a group of women artists who found themselves underrepresented in the art world. Created as a cooperative, WARM members support one another in order to bring women to the forefront of their local art community. Today's WARM members reflect a diverse group of women who use or create art within their lives in many different ways and for many different reasons.
The WARM Mentor Program, founded in 1982, matches up professional artists as mentors with emerging artists as protegees. Each program cycle lasts for two years. During that time period, mentors meet on a regular basis with their protegees to provide support and guidance.
Members of the WARM organization are provided various opportuities to participate in art exhibitions, networking events, mentoring programs and educational forums on a variety of art-related topics. In addition, WARM sponsors annual exhibitions, allowing members to participate and exhibit their work.
