What’s hotter than July in Kansas? WAM’s outdoor Summer Birthday Bash! Bring a lawn chair, blanket, fave sun hat, and slather on sunscreen! Pick a spot, and picnic on the lawn. Let’s be social, but mindfully distanced.

Purchase food-truck yummies or just chill out with an icy drink while listening to the steel drum vibes of Pan ICT Steel Band performing in the Paula and Barry Downing Amphitheater as WAM celebrates 86 years!

Free family fun galore with lawn games, chalk art, and a cool community art project inspired by WAM’s Chihuly Bridge, Persian Seaform Ceiling. We’ll provide the supplies—you provide the imagination! Our team of WAM Hot Shop creatives will sweat the hot stuff to simulate molten glass melting and molding. Once cooled, your creation will be added to a temporary Art Garden installation before moving inside to awe and inspire visitors until this time next year.

No meltdown is complete without a sugary treat. Wichita Wagonmasters will be handing out wrapped ice cream sandwiches while supplies last!
